Q and A about Taxi in Tokyo

The author, who has been a taxi driver for a year in Tokyo, answers the questions.

Do Japanese taxi drivers speak English?

Most drivers can't speak English fluently.

Elderly drivers especially don't talk much.

 

However, Japanese learn English in compulsory education, so many people know simple words.

If the driver doesn't speak English, use google translate.

 

Is there a refusal to ride?

In Tokyo, it is rare to be refused a ride taxi.

Because the rules for cracking down on taxi drivers in Tokyo are very strict.

 

Do Japanese taxis unfairly charge fares?

In Tokyo, it is rare to be charged unfairly.

Because the rules for cracking down on taxi drivers in Tokyo are very strict.

 

Do you have a recommended taxi company?

In Tokyo, "Nihon Koutsu" and "km" are my recommend.

 

Can I use a credit card?

Yes. About 50% of taxis in Japan accept credit cards.

But credit cards may not be accepted even in taxis that accept credit cards. For example, Terminal troubles, insufficient balance, compatibility issues, etc.
