Bus commuter pass?

I see people with a bus commuter pass and I'm wondering if there's any information online about this? (I can find a lot of information about the train tekken commuter passes.) I want to see the prices and if it's worth it for me to buy one. If it matters, I'm looking for Yokohama area ones... Keikyu bus or Kanachu bus. (or is there one for all companies?)

    I don’t know specifics but I would suggest going to your main bus station. They would most likely sell them there. Everywhere is different when it comes to bus services and passes.

    Where would I even find which station the "main bus station" would be?

    I'm not positive about this, but I think bus passes are typically sponsored, so a student by their school, employee by company for bus passes. That was how it was in my town. It was a small town though. Ask a major train station master about the local buses. They will often know something.

    Those passes are the best if you know you will be taking the buses often, as most of them are basically 'all you can ride', so if you are using it every week day for work, it's worth it already, and if you would take it on the weekends too, then it's a lovely deal. If it's like 3 times a week though, maybe not.

    You should find information on the websites of the bus companies. Usually, there are different commuter passes for different companies and they are sold at different places. I use a commuter pass for a bus company in Tokyo and they are only sold at certain convenience stores that are close to the bus stops. If your company covers your commuting expenses they should also cover your bus fees.

How to prepare gobo, burdock root

Hello City Cost Hive Mind, I've been gifted a whole, dirty gobo root. I know how to cook kinpira gobo, but I've only ever handled processed gobo root. How do I prepare this root vegetable? Do I simply wash and then slice it? Does it need blanched or something? Cheers!

What's on your Christmas list this year?

Curious to know what everyone's hoping for this Christmas! Is it a sign of my age now that I want a robot vacuum?! I can recall a time when getting a cleaning object may have been downright offensive, but not these days! I don't really have much else that I want or need. How about the rest of you?

UNIQLO trousers post-laundry

Anyone out there know how I can stop my Uniqlo trousers from coming out of the washing machine coated in bits of what I guess is material from other stuff that they get washed with? And why is it only the Uniqlo stuff that I have this problem with? A note on the washing machine - it's probably about 20 years old. Changing the washing machine is something I'm hoping to postpone for some time yet. And on the occasion of the image in this question a white imabari towel was also in the laundry load which I assume to have exacerbated the situation this time around. I'm using liquid soaps and softeners.

Winter illumination recommendations in Japan

I'm quite a fan of Japan's winter illuminations and have been to plenty of spots in Tokyo -- Marunouchi, Shinjuku, Solamachi, Odaiba, Shiodome, Tokyo Midtown, Omotesando, Yebisu Garden Place. Anything I'm missing? Or any winter illuminations further afield that might warrant a trip out of town? Particularly interested in illuminations that are romantic and moody rather than, say, those with loads of crazy colors and designs.
