Automatically opening doors

You will be welcomed by automatically opening doors

In Japan, you don’t have to open the door by yourself. The door opens automatically to welcome you.

This is how Japanese taxis welcome you.

Even if you have your hands full with big luggage, it doesn’t matter in Japan.

Wi-Fi available (in some taxis)

Are you a serious worker?

If you are a serious worker and cannot leave your laptop or iPad alone, you should always look for a Wi-Fi connection.

Here it is!

Sometimes you can find a taxi with Wi-Fi available.

Once it was an experimental project.

In 2011, NTT group launched a project offering free Wi-Fi for 800 taxis for a limited time. Apparently, it became clear that there is a big need for it especially with working people.

If you are lucky, you can find this mark.

Actually, Wi-Fi in taxis is not quite common yet in Japan. However, some taxis such as the ones at the airport are already offering this service.

Driver’s security board

To protect drivers from any troubles

Since around 10 years ago, almost all taxi have this protection board which covers the area around the driver’s head. Why? At that time, there were lots of criminals who attack taxi drivers to get money from them. Such tragedy happened so often that we settled down to install this security board.

Almost all taxis have installed it.

You will see this board when you take a Japanese taxi.
