Also, if you are travelling and want to say "It's one more mile" or "We have one mile left," you would simply say:

Ato ichi mairu.

Of course, remember that if you're in Japan, you wouldn't say "mile," but "kilometer." ;)

Gurai (kurai) is used a lot for distances and time.

ichi mairu gurai node, basu de 5fun kakaru hazu da

because it's about amile, by bus it should take 5 minutes
