Japan has created an authentic Star Wars experience for fans with a fancy ride in their Star Fighting Bus.

Created by Willer Travel, a company that specializes in nighttime travel via highway buses -- something Japan has an abundance of -- the Star Fighter Bus includes spacious cockpit-like seating and mood lighting to resemble the actual spaceship. While the exterior is plastered with a spaceship design, the interior stays relatively true to the original with its emergency exit markings and decorated wall panels. Those traveling on the night bus are often stuck in transit for at least three or four hours so Willer Travel has included games where each commuter can play with their own joystick. So far, this bus ride is only available in certain areas of Japan.
