    it is relatively easy to catch a taxi and ride around sasebo because they are everywhere! some of the drivers would actually stop in the middle of driving just to see if you need a ride!...majority of the cabs are parked in various locations in the ginza and there are some cabs that are allowed on base...oh yeah and if you call a cab all you have to say is one word like "ginza" or "family mart" and they will understand what your talking about for sasebo is a small city....the cabs I recommend to take is King Taxi as well as lucky taxi for they understand english better and even though the fares all relatively start at $5.00 the meter doesn't quite go up fast like the other cab drivers...but I think that king taxi accepts american money and if you ask they can probably give you the change back in American dollars unlike most other cabs...and also unlike most cabs king taxi (lucky taxi as well)is allowed on base...

    USS Harpers Ferry

    Definitely not my favorite mode of transportation, but I get paid pretty well to be onboard. Unfortunately it likes to sail a little too much. Last year I think we spent one month in home port. The rest of the time was spent deployed or doing other missions. I guess the upside to it all is I save a good chunk of money always being at sea. Anyway, the first picture is of the Harpers Ferry getting ready to take in an LCAC. The next picture is of the Harpers Ferry and the Juneau in the India Basin at the Sasebo ship yard.

    If you are touring Sasebo or just don't have a motorized vehicle The only ways you can get around Sasebo is by utilizing the taxi services this and all Japanese towns offer. There are thousands of them. Fares usually start off at about 560Yen. You can also take the bus system around town or out of town. A bus usually cost about 2,000Yen for out of town trips. If all esle fails just walk. =o)

    Point A to Point B in Sasebo

    Getting around Sasebo, especially in the town proper, usually does not require transport. But if you're not the type who like walking everywhere, the city bus system is the way to go. Fares range from 100 yen to about 300 yen and more depending on distance travelled. Bus stops are numerous especially in the downtown area around the shopping arcade. Definitely not for fast movers who are short on time.

    Taxi's are abundant in Sasebo for local and quick transit. Fares all start at 560yen, which is about $5.60 dollars and that takes you the first mile roughly. They can get pricey!
