The bus even comes with a heart-shaped window like the one at a famous Kyoto temple.
Now, though, it’s time to shift our attention to Japanese buses, or at least, one bus in particular, which is making news for its stunning interior, designed to resemble the inside of a Japanese teahouse.
Called the Ujicha Bus (Uji Tea Bus), the new vehicle will make you feel as if you’ve stepped into a tearoom to enjoy a traditional Japanese tea ceremony.

Inside, you’ll find a decorative tea canister by the front door as you enter, a hanging scroll with “tea” written on it in beautiful calligraphy at the back, and bamboo screens on the doors, windows and two of the seats.

The best thing about the interior, though, is its zen-like teahouse corner, located at the very back of the bus. This is where you’ll find a small table in between two seats, with a circular window behind one seat and a stunning heart-shaped window by the table.
