The Unique Fruit Bus Stop In Japan
Konagai is a coastal town in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. Despite its tranquility, it attracts many tourists due to its fascinating and unique fruit-themed bus stop model.
There are a total of 16 bus stops, each bus stop is a different fruit with vibrant colors. This has intrigued many curious tourists to come here for sightseeing and taking photos.
Coming to Konagai, travelers will surely love these fruit-shaped bus stops. One of the most famous stops is Amidaza, shaped like an orange, with a distinctive design and colors. This location has even appeared in Japanese commercials. These bus stops were initially created as models for a tourism fair in 1990 in Nagasaki. Later, the local authorities moved them to Konagai for use as actual bus stops.
This innovative design also serves as a way to promote local produce. Therefore, when you visit, you can enjoy delicious fruits like strawberries, tomatoes, and melons.
However, there are some things to consider when visiting Konagai. Since the area lacks well-developed transportation and tourism infrastructure, you should rent a car for more effortless mobility. The population is also sparse, leading to infrequent bus services connecting the fruit-themed bus stops.
GoEMON recommended exploring local restaurants for dining and filling up your gas tank before your visit, as eateries and gas stations tend to close early in the area.
