Tips for Riding Japan's City Buses

You can take the train or subway to the vast majority of places in Japan, but depending on where you go and/or if you end up working in Japan, you may have to use the bus at some point.  For example, if you're in Naha (Okinawa), you have to take a bus to get to Ryukyumura, which is definitely a MUST if you're in Naha! :D  You can also see how taking the bus is also the easiest and cheapest way to see Kyoto.

Anyway, depending on where you're from, the bus system may be a little different and of course, there's the language barrier.

I wrote a quick step-by-step guide for riding Japan's local buses on my blog, Trekking with Becky, with Japanese phrases that you may need - http://www.trekkingwithbecky.com/a-quick-guide-to-riding-japans-city-buses/

As always, give me a shout if you have any questions! :D

I'm half-Japanese originally from Canada, and I've been living in Japan since Sept. 2010.
