Fun Fact about Tokyo

When you hail a taxi in Tokyo, be careful not to reach for the door handle to get in. You might get a surprise because the left back door opens and closes automatically. That’s one of the quirks of taxis in Japan. The city has an estimated 60,000 taxis, including some eco-friendly vehicles. Hinomaru Limousine is operating two ZeRO emission electric vehicles in Chiyoda Ward, while other taxi companies have started using some Toyota Prius hybrids.
