I got off the bus as the bus arrived at its destination. I turned around and saw a young woman standing at the bus stop, waiting for the bus to arrive. There were many buses coming and going, but the one she was waiting for seemed to be slow in coming, and she was watching the bus without moving her eyes.
It was very difficult to ride the local bus freely on the road until I started carrying a smartphone with Google Maps in it. Not only in Japan, but even more so when I go abroad. At any rate, I didn't know whether there was a bus to my destination or not at first. Even if I knew there was, I didn't know where the bus stop was, and it was difficult to decide which bus to take. If I get on the bus, I will have to rely on kind locals to tell me where to get off. Google Maps solved such problems of taking local buses in one fell swoop. It told me where the bus stop is, where I should take the bus, and where I should get off the bus in one fell swoop.
How convenient it is. Especially in Taiwan, the destination is written in Chinese characters, so it's easy to understand for me. Then I came to use local buses. But even if I make full use of Google Maps, they still don't tell me how to pay the fare.
