This photograph is taken in Honkomagome of Bunkyo-ku. This is a bus station of the community bus. This route was carried out in April, 2007, and circulates through the area in Sendagi, Komagome, Hakusan, and Korakuen in Bunkyo-ku. The seating accommodation of a bus is with 14 and a capacity is 41 person's small bus. This is the reason for a small bus is used from a user's little and passing through narrow roads in many cases. The interval of bus station is comparatively short and is well used as a local resident's leg focusing on the old person. A charge is cheap, so both of an adult and a child are 100 yen regardless of distance. Operation generally operates at intervals of 20 minutes from 7:00 of a morning to 8:00 of night. This is a round system while a general bus on a regular route runs the starting point and a terminal point in both directions. Recently, such community buses have been increasing in number also rural areas besides Tokyo. Many self-governing body have entrusted management to the private sector contractor. Generally, it's called a community bus which the municipal corporation is participating in operation in a certain form for the purpose of the improvement in convenience of traffic of elderly people and a physically handicapped person, etc., of local residents making it easy to go to a public facility or a medical institution etc.,. Musashino-shi, Tokyo was made into "Mubus" which started operation in 1995, and the forerunner spread all over the country after that.

Effective close up shot and making that big bus as a strong focal is an excellent idea and balance the compo while the eye gets to wonder around this shot and eventually to the waiting passangers. Its rather lively spot indeed getting about their day- to-day activity, but importantly i love the lighting and colors. Exposure is okay despite the strong lighting there, and good tonal contrast. Well done.
