Taxis run widely in Tokyo, and these could be stopped on the street side as well as at cab pools or taxi ranks in front of hotels, train stations and large buildings. Taxis are clean and comfortable, offering white-glove service and lace seat covers. The minimum fare for one subway ride is JPY 150 (USD 1.4) and minimum rate for one taxi ride (2 km) is JPY 410 (USD 3.7).
