What if you're in a rural location and/ or teaching in a number of locations and the public transportation options are limited?
One word: motorcycles.

Tohoku & Hokkaido would like to disagree with you for 5+ months of the year. Nagano & Niigata (among several others) would probably join the collective as well. Laughing
