problem in night bus reservation 2007/9/14 09:55
Kyoto City
Since I and my friend plan to take a night bus from Tokyo to Kyoto (on the night of Sep. 24th), I looked into these two sites
http://www.tokyohostels.com/night-bus-tokyo-kyoto/night-bus-...
and
http://www.orion-tour.co.jp/english/rsv/

The problem is I sent my request through the reservation form and e-mail twice and got no reply at all.

Should I give up and book for another night at hostel? Or is there any chances to get a night bus ticket at the departure point?

Looking forward to your answers. Thanks in advance. :)

be aware that the companies you are inquiring about aren't necessarily the cheapest. For example, www.123bus.net has some better deals.

Or is there any chances to get a night bus ticket at the departure point?

Every night bus that I have taken had no way to purchase tickets at the bus. Even if they did, if the bus was full you'd be in trouble finding lodging for the night.
