"Sorry, not in service." What a polite bus in Okayama! Even in Japanese, it actually apologizes for not being in service. Also notice the cat ears on the roof, the painted whiskers, and the nickname "Tama Bus."Nicknamed after a stray cat named Nitama that was found in Okayama and adopted as the stationmaster of Idakiso Station in Wakayama. The original and nationally famous cat stationmaster named Tama at Kishi Station on the same train line died earlier this year. So Nitama took over. So happens that the train line's parent co. is the same as this bus company's based in Okayama.Sep 28, 2016
