When traveling within Japan, the night bus is an inexpensive and easy way to get around. However, because many buses leave very late and arrive early the following morning. they can be more exhausting than other modes of transportation. Another issue is that because most shops in the vicinity will still be closed when you get to your destination, it’s hard to find a place where you can sit and take a break.

In this article, we’ll introduce some spots around Nagoya which are open even in the early morning and late at night. We’ve compiled a list of cafes where you can take a break after you arrive, Internet cafes you can use while you wait for departure, public baths where you can relax, and more.
