Bus Intercity, Ohayami Trans (Ohayami Trans), Jan 18, 2023
Good but aircon was too much cold. 10 degrees ! So, We had to ask the driver to adjust it higher.
Bus Intercity, Ohayami Trans (Ohayami Trans), Oct 6, 2022
There was a mix up around seats. We didn’t get the seats that were allotted on the ticket. Also, the e ticket didn’t have the vehicle details. It caused some inconvenience to find these out at the last minute.

Bus Intercity, Ohayami Trans (Ohayami Trans), Feb 22, 2020
Very very cold. The AC was crazy strong and it was 10° in the bus. 2 t shirts 2 pull over and one coat were not enough. Horrible night. The drivers talk loud in the middle of the night and they don't stop 3 times. No toilet in this bus.
