Kyoto to Nagoya Destination Reviews

The ride and the busdriver were great! The only issue I had was with the ticket. On the confirmation email it said that I cannot use this one as a ticket, so I ran around at the station to find an office providing me with a valid ticket.. but nobody knew about this. So I finally just went to the bus stop hoping and eventually also finding that there was no ticket needed as the driver had a list with all registered names anyway.
