    Buses tend tend to look like, well, buses. Not this one. It looks like a futuristic spacecraft. No wonder it's called "Star Fighter."

    Japanese bus company Willer Travel has a fleet of overnight buses that transport people across Japan, whether that's from Osaka to Tokyo or other routes.

    The company also has the Star Fighter, ready to take visitors on tours. Among them is a one-hour trip from Tokyo's Shinjuku to the Tsukuba Space Center, where Japan's version of NASA is based. Other trips are within Tokyo. This is less a traditional bus and more an amusement attraction—which is probably why Willer Travel calls the Star Fighter an "attraction bus."

    And here's the front of the bus.

    An anime-style video greets travellers, and seats are outfitted with a joystick that is used to play games inside the vehicle.

    The roof glows spacey, giving the cabin an otherworldly feeling.
