~*~ Types of Transportation of Japan~*~

When arriving to Japan, I noticed one major way of transportation that many people use; the subways. The subway system was packed with tons of people. People who were dressed in business attire, to children, to even the elderly.  There was even a subway car only for women.  In the subway cars, there are cushioned seats and poles with hanging hand grips for people to hold onto.  There were signs in the subway cars that illustrated to be mindful of others and not to play your music too loud.  Also, it was instructed not to talk on cell phones, or have the ringer on your cell phone turned while in the subway cars.

Another type of transportation was the buses. They were small and compact and you entered the bus through the back and exit through the front.  The bus driver wore a head set and spoke the the passengers at every stop.  the single seats in the front of the bus and towards the back, were designed for two seats and one long row that seated up to four on the very last seat. There were buzzers on the walls and some busses had them on the polls and there was a pasmo/suica card reader to pay for your fare if you wanted to use your card.

The taxis and cars were small in Japan.  The steering wheels were on the right hand side of cars, and the people drove on the opposite side of the street than we do as well!
