TAXI:    General Information
In Japan, taxis are expensive and the time and costs depend on the traffic condition. If you take in a group, a taxi may also be an economical alternative. Most taxis accommodate up to four passengers (not including the driver), while larger vehicles are able to accommodate an additional fifth passenger. Taxi fares typically start around 600-700 Yen for the first two kilometers and increase by roughly 100 Yen for every additional 500 meters traveled. The cost also increases when the taxi is not moving for a prolonged time. Late in the evening, rates are raised by 20-30 percent. Note that you do not need to tip taxi drivers. The service is included in the price.
When you board taxi, the vehicle's left rear door is opened and closed remotely by the driver. You are not supposed to open or close it by yourself.

If you do not speak Japanese, or your destination is not a well known place, it is recommended to give your driver the precise address of your destination on a piece of paper or, even better, point it out on a map, since the Japanese address system can be confusing even to local taxi drivers.
