Bus Stop near Yakushi-ji Temple

Public transportation in Japan

Bus stops seem to be in obscure places but they are old and well used intersections.


Press the light when you are expecting to get off at the next stop. Have your money ready so you can exit quickly. All done in Japanese efficient style. Lots of people on the bus have either their cell phone or iPod in hand.

So you pay when you exit the bus? Not when you enter?

You pay as you exit. Unlike trains, you don't get a ticket before you board. You can use bills to pay (a machine changes the bills into coins that are accepted by the fair box).
