Yoshiwara Chuo Station

This rather dingy bus station is a major transportation hub in Fuji City. Here you can get buses to suburbs of the city including Fujimidai, Obuchi, Imaizumi, Sobina and others. You can also catch regular buses to Fujinomiya Station, Rose Theatre, Fuji Central Hospital and Fuji Station, as well as Shin Fuji Station, Numazu Station and JR Yoshiwara Station.

There are only a couple of buses daily to Fuji Soko Undo Park and the popular family destinations of Fuji Children's Park, Safari Park and Yeti ski park. There are three buses every morning directly to Tokyo Station. Also, shuttles to Fuji AEON Mall stop here a few times a day. Finally, you can get a taxi here at almost every time of the day or night. The Tenjinya right next door has cheap (and often greasy) breakfast and lunch.

To get the full bus schedule, simply ask the woman at the window: "Jikokyu-hyou kudasai." If you don't speak Japanese though, you'll need some help to make sense of it.
