Taxi services are an inexpensive and needless option to effective transport for the ordinary cost-conscious traveller in the major Japanese capitals. Nevertheless, cabs are often the only way to move when services are cancelled around 12 p.m., leading to a sharp rise in traffic, especially on Friday and Saturday night when long queues and taxi rushes are not infrequent.
Smaller towns, rural areas and Kyoto are generally less comfortable with local transport, so taking a taxi from the closest railway stations to your final destinations may be a good choice. When travelling in groups of three or more, cabs can also be an economic choice for short trips.
In order to call a taxi, either go to a taxi rank (usually in front of stations) or mark one in a place where it is sure to stop. There is a panel on the instrument panel in the lower part of the windscreen to indicate whether a taxi is free or not.
Normally a flashing sign indicates that the taxi is free, while a flashing sign indicates the opposite (see figure below). In the middle of the evening, a lamp on the top of a taxi may indicate that the taxi is free. It is also possible to call a taxi by telephone, via your local telephone, via an apartment or via your local telephone desk; in large towns there are usually no extra charges for taxi calls, while in more remote areas there may be a small surcharge.
If you get into a taxi, please be aware that the back doors on the car's side are opened and locked from a distance by the chauffeur. Unless you don't know your way to a place in Japan, it's a good idea to give your taxi rider the location of your trip on a sheet of hard copy, or even better, on a card, because the system can be quite bewildering even for locals.
A lot of taxi companies are accepting payments by bank cards, and more and more are accepting payments by cards such as Suica. Taxi service is available in some areas, especially in favourite tourism areas, as a sight-seeing taxi, with the taxi operator also acting as a travel agent. Even though the linguistic barriers could be a concern, in some areas there are taxi operators with knowledge of languages or taxi companies that specifically target internationalers.
As a rule, sight-seeing taxi services costs around 10,000 Japanese yen for two hrs. Taxidrivers in Japan are usually very reliable and will not try to take full advantage of their customers. Licenseed cabs can be identified by their verdant number plate, as distinct from the whites and yellows of normal car number plate.
At some places visited by international visitors, such as Narita Airport, there are occasional cases of unauthorised taxi services that should be better prevented. The taxi rates vary slightly according to regions, companies and car sizes. You' d meet three typical class of cabs. Big cabs (???, ?gatasha) have a capacity of over 2000ccm and transport up to five people.
Midsize cabs (???, ch?gatasha) and small cabs (???, kogatasha) are the most common, have a capacity of 2000cc or less and transport up to four people. The only difference between medium-sized and small cabs is the length of the car and thus the size of the cabin. Using a regular four-person taxi, fare usually starts at about 400-700 Japanese yen for the first two kilometres and increases by about 80-90 Japanese yen for every 300-400 metres.
Costs also increase if the taxi does not travel for a longer period of inactivity. Later in the night (typically 22.00 to 5.00), the tariffs are increased by 20 per cent.
