Can someone please explain Japanese road markings?

I keep Googling Japanese road markings and it seems that every time I do so, I get a different answer. So now I am doubting my sanity.

 

I really just want to know three things:

  1. A solid line on the left hand side of the road — yellow or white?
  2. A solid line separating opposing lanes (northbound and southbound) — yellow or white?
  3. A box outlining a bus stop — yellow or white?

Thanks

Simple answers, which will work for a layout (unless you have some highly specific traffic layout you wish to reproduce):

 

1. White

2. Yellow or white; yellow line is always solid, white line is not always solid (but easier to implement as a solid line)

3. White.
