Hokkaido Taxi Cab new design !

Dear Followers,

For repeater customer and new comers this year, you will have the chance to maybe ride the new Japanese Taxi released recently by Toyota,

An smooth urban compact design for 4 pax and luggages, for a comfortable ride.

Here the release note by Toyota :

An all-new taxi that will alter the Japanese landscape

On the heels of its storied history as a symbolic taxi in Japan, a brand new taxi will appear on the road of the next era. Its name is JPN Taxi (Japan Taxi).
With its exterior body dressed in the symbolic, traditional Japanese color koiai – a color known outside of Japan as Japanese indigo, which has long decorated the lives of the Japanese people – the JPN Taxi is designed to complement both cityscapes and historical landscapes. With detailed functions adapted with thoughtful and attentive consideration, alongside outstanding eco-functions expected from a model that represents the future, the JPN Taxi will vividly “repaint” Japanese scenic imagery familiar to people the world over.




Koiai. It’s a color born from the hearts of the Japanese, a deep indigo blue that stands the test of time. “Ai” has been a beloved color in Japan since ancient times. It is also a color representative of the country Japan – known as Japanese indigo outside of Japan. Long a symbol of Japan, this traditional color evokes Japanese hospitality. The color koiai will stand by you, and give you a sense of security, dignity, and formality. It’s the new standard color of taxis in Japan that allows for flexible use in a wide range of scenarios, from daily use to formal occasions and business.


A universal design that delivers comfort and peace of mind to a wide range of people

Imagine being out and about in your wheelchair. Going shopping with small children. A busy executive enjoying some down time. Or visitors to Japan asking to ride the JPN Taxi again and again. From the far north to the southern climes, from the city center to scenic spots, this taxi will play an active role in your life. It’s a taxi with a people-friendly, universal design that delivers comfort and peace of mind to a diverse range of people, suitable for a variety of occasions. The JPN Taxi embodies the spirit of Japanese hospitality, born out of numerous improvements and without compromise, as seen in such features as the convenient grab handles and the overall structure of the vehicle.


A design pursued by customers, drivers, and business owners.

The vehicle features a power rear sliding door and a low, flat floor. Large windows allow customers to enjoy a view of the landscape. The cabin features a high ceiling, and the driver has an optimal range of vision due to the position of the pillars and rear windshield wipers. Headlights and fenders are divided into separate parts, contributing to lower repair costs. We have taken into consideration the comfort of customers, the convenience of drivers, and the priorities of business owners and managers. The road that stretches beyond our aim contains the happiness of everyone who shares time with the JPN Taxi.

Hakodate in Hokkaido !

A vibrant and active morning seafood market. A unique blend of Japanese and Western architecture exists in the city.

Located in the southwest of Hokkaido and facing the Tsugaru Strait, Hakodate developed as a port town for trade with foreign countries at the end of the 19th century, and is a gateway connecting Hokkaido with Honshu by the Seikan Tunnel.

A morning market is held at the bay area near the railway station, where more than 360 stalls packed tightly together attract shoppers with freshly caught squid, scallops, salmon eggs, Atka mackerel, and many other kinds of fresh fish and shellfish. A five-minute walk will take you to the moored Seikan Strait ferryboat, named the Mashu-maru Memorial Ship, which used to link Aomori in Honshu with Hokkaido. There is a restaurant and a coffee shop at its bow where you can spend a nice, relaxing time viewing the scenery around the port.

The area around Motomachi maintains a congenial blend of Japanese and Western cultures, being home to the Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward, an important cultural property, the old British Consulate with its tea lounge, Hakodate Russian Orthodox church, as well as the Higashi-Hongan-ji Temple, a branch temple of the Higashi-Hongan-ji Temple in Kyoto. At the waterfront overlooking the Hakodate Port, there is a shopping mall inside remodeled red brick warehouses, gift shops and the Hakodate Beer Hall.

Asahikawa Asahiyama Zoo

A zoo featuring fascinating exhibits showing the behavior of the animals in their natural habitats

Located in the very north of Japan, Asahiyama Zoo is home to 700 animals of 124 different species, and is the first facility in Japan to have succeeded in the natural breeding in captivity of animals that live in cold regions, such as polar bears, Amur leopards, and Scops owls. Moreover, the zoo has become popular for its exhibits that enable visitors to see each animal’s innate attributes and their unique abilities and movements, so there are always many tourists, not only from within Japan, but also from overseas.

A tunnel enables visitors to see how penguins swim in a way that looks just like flying, while spotted seals behave just like they do in the wild, as they swim vertically through a transparent pillar-shaped tank called a marineway. Other popular attractions include the Polar Bear Aquatic Park, where visitors can see polar bears, weighing almost 300 kg, as they dive into the pool, and the Orangutan Trapeze, where orangutans stroll around 16m above the ground. You mustn’t miss the sight of the penguins walking around in the snow to alleviate their lack of exercise. They happily walk around briskly in a group in front of the tourists. Their daily feeding time is also a must-see. The keepers put on diving suits to feed the penguins in the water; this method of feeding the animals in a way that brings out their natural traits is unique to Asahiyama Zoo. All of the animals can be seen living in a natural environment as they entertain visitors.
