You need the middle door to get on and front door to get off the bus. If you have a card like Suica or Pasmo it is enough to touch terminal inside, so minimum fare calculates automatically. If you have no card you need to take a ticket when you get on and drop it with coins into a box near the driver when you exit. That's why you need to exit through the front door. No change is given when you pay, so there is an exchange machine nearby. How do you know how much to pay? Well, a navigation app can tell you when you plan the route. Otherwise, there is a display in the bus with fares under stop names. The farther you go, the more you pay. You can also buy a day pass from the driver, so you just show it when you get off.

Get ready to put on and off your shoes many times a day. So the best option is to have slip-on shoes.

In the supermarket. A little bit of cashier's UI can be seen. Cashbox gives the change to cashier automatically when you pay in cash. He just needs to give it back to you with two hands and a slight bow. You need to confirm you are 20+ with a touch of a screen if you buy alcohol.

Some food. Fruits are expensive—more than $1 for one apple. It's a joy to buy yogurt, jelly, sushi, rice with fish, etc because the cashier will give you a spoon and chopsticks for free according to your purchase. Why don't we have such a thing? How many times has a lack of spoon stopped me from buying yogurt? Countless times! Cashier also puts hot and cold goods in different bags. Hot? Yeah, you can buy warm food or ask the cashier to warm it up. Sometimes there are microwave ovens and boiled water for noodles in the shop.

Navigation at the station. At first, I thought platform 0 on my ticket is a mistake and I would need to look my train up on the information board. But no, there is platform 0. It's Kanazawa direction.
