Lots to tell about taxis in Japan. But I'm going to focus in this paper illustrated the current tariff system in force in Tokyo's taxis. As you're probably wondering how much it costs on average a taxi in Tokyo?
Once the taxi driver opened up the door (it's automatic, you do not need to touch anything) and you put your ass in the back seat of the vehicle, support base stood at 710 yen (about € 7) for the first two kilometers. Then your counter will increase at a rate - varies companies - from 90 yen (about € 0.90) every 288 meters (yes, it's very accurate!). If you drive at a speed exceeding 10km / h, ie if you get stuck (e) in traffic, an additional ¥ 90 every 105 seconds will be charged. If you take a taxi between 22h and 5am, an increase in the base price applies: 20%. No additional charges for suitcases, bags or stroller you might want to store in the trunk of the vehicle.
So the basic info. This gives what exactly?
More or less:
- • ¥ 25,000 for a trip Narita Airport - Tokyo (prefer N'EX or Skyliner )
- • ¥ 6,500 for a trip Haneda Airport - Tokyo
- • ¥ 1,500 for a trip Shibuya - Roppongi
Regarding the payment of the race, prefer cash ("break" still tickets ¥ 10,000). You can also pay your taxi through a travel card (Pasmo or Suica) that you have previously loaded with enough credit. Finally, note that most credit cards (including foreign) are accepted. In the latter case, beware of any fees that your bank may charge you.
