I couldnt really say if this is a thing that goes for the whole country or if buses mainly stick to their routes. However its something that is worth to find out when you need to depend on a bus.
In Shimonoseki I had to take bus no 1 to get to the Youth Hostel. The woman at TIC told me just to jump on and get off at last stop. I did. No problems there. But next day I got back from a daytrip to Hiroshima around 7.30pm. Jumped on the same bus at the same stop. Leaned back, relaxed and waited for my stop at the end of the route.
It ended in a bit of a nightmare. The bus didnt turn left to go up the mountain but headed straight on onto a big road. I got off at closest stop but still had to walk for an hour to get back. In the rainy, stormy dark, following this major road. Not to sure I was allowed to walk there. There was no shops, hotels or restaurants where I could call a taxi.
It was just not a very pleasant experience.
So check the busroutes before you hop on!
