Mood:  bright
Topic: Transportation



The Taxi fare in Tokyo becomes afforadable now!

The taxi fare in Tokyo is 410 yen now. The rate is reduced from the former price, 730 yen to 410 yen and a significant reduction of 320 yen.The lower-priced taxis are running in 23 wards of Tokyo, Musashino city and Mitaka city. Instead, the distance you can go with this fare is shorter. It was 2 kilometers for the first ride but it was 1.052 kilometers now.The addition step of the taxi meter also is changed from 90 yen to 80 yen.By this, it is thought that the hurdle oversea travelers get on a taxi became lower If your hotel locates a little bit far from a station, you can catch a taxi easily. This priced taxi service is available only in Tokyo.
