Hi there - I was wondering if anyone knows of an overnight bus or train that travels between Narita or Tokyo and Aomori? I arrive late in the afternoon on the 31st in Narita and would like to start the journey right away but noticed that I may have to wait until the am.
Kind of convoluted - anyone have a travel tip for the new guy?

Thanks,
Matt

have you looked into flying up? That's a LONG way to be stuck on a bus. You can take a shinkansen (bullet train) for sure but its probably the most expensive choice

Looks like there's one at Shinjuku 21:50 for 9K.

Look up Willer Express, there's an English site.

Bit of a journey, good luck.

Train would get you there a lot faster.. Not sure how late you mean by late in afternoon you mean. But leaving Narita around half 6 will get you to Aomori anytime between midnight and 8 the next morning. Prices range from 17,200 to 19,200.
