Tokyo Taxi

Taxi drivers wearing white gloves, glass partitions between the front and back seats of the cabs, and car doors that automatically open and close. Welcome to Tokyo taxis. Last week I was in Japan and I took a few cabs while I was there, but coming from Bangkok, it was hard to adjust to Tokyo's expensive cab fares. And it just wasn't as fun taking cabs that don't have Buddha and monk statuettes on the dashboard.
