Taxis in Japan have afew different featuresthan ours here inCanada.Vacant Occupied This Taxi has the electronic doors, that open and close by the control of the taxi driver, as you can see all the seats and headrests are covered. When you get into the taxi you a charged a flat rate fee what’s called a はつのり and its usually ¥710 and it covers you for 2km. And if you are going to be out late at night, you can expect to pay triple the price. (10pm- 5am.) The taxi drivers wear white gloves when driving, and the doors open and close for you, so don’t ever try and close it, as it could trap your fingers. Most taxi drivers don’t/wont speak English, so most foreign people, write down their location, and shove it in the drivers face. Taxis in Japan are very busy at night as buses. Train are closed for the night.
