Japanese Taxis – タクシー سيارات الأجرة في اليابان

” In Japan, taxicabs each have colours or designs based on the company. The majority of Japanese cars are white, silver or black. Some taxis adopt showy colours, such as green, red, and orange, to attract customers’ attention.

Most Japanese taxis are one of three types of cars: the Toyota Comfort; Nissan Crew; and Nissan Cedric Y31. They all have automatic passenger doors, which open when a button is pressed by the driver. However, elite taxis may have drivers that manually open the door for the passenger.  

Recently, some taxi companies have selected Toyota Crown S170 and/or S180 as taxis because cars made for use as taxis (such as Comfort, Crew and Cedric) have very plain interiors.” (Wikipedia, accessed July 03, ’10)

I liked this entry as it discusses the taxicabs in Japan in details, even the models, hehehe~

When I’ve first been to Japan in ’03, I was wondering if I would be able to ride on one of those old taxicab models as I’ve used to see them on TV., and yes I did! that was so much fun to feel the genuity of Japanese manufactures, old but equipped with a TV and automatic doors! AWESOME… AWESOME!! All the cabs’ drivers there wear  hats, gloves and very formally dressed up, it gives a lemo feeling although it’s not. ..NEAAAT!!  VERY NEAAAAAT!!

      والجميل انهم حافظوا على الطراز التقليدي للسيارات اليابانية مع تزويدها بأحدث التقنيات مثل دفع قيمة الأجرة بالهاتف المحمول و فتح و غلق الباب الكترونياًََّ
