I wish we knew about this app sooner!!!
We have been in Tokyo for 5 nights and we just found this app!! We’re from Los Angeles where we use Uber for any and all needed rides, we were lamenting the fact that there is no Uber-like apps UNTIL we found japan taxi.
It has been so easy to use, we input our airbnb address and our taxi came, it’s cool that you can pay through the app
Thank you for creating this app! I wish we knew about this from the beginning of our trip.
Uber or Lyft it is Not!
A good idea, but poor implementation and plenty of bugs. I had nothing but problems each time I tried to use it. On 3 different occasions trying to use it in major parts of Kyoto it only worked and that was only after the 2nd attempt as the first cab never showed up. I would often get "no can available at this location" or the app would simply not respond when attempting to request a taxi.
Difficult for travelers
Addresses appear in Japanese writing (which is understandable). But hard to use if you dint speak Japanese. Also, I have two coupons in my account that cannot and are not being applied to my rides... so, they’re useless.
