Perhaps you prefer a more traditional ride- here’s the numbers to a variety of off-base cabs:

Hijagawa Taxi, KAD 956-2215

Kita Koutsu Taxi, KIT 935-2138

Meiho Taxi, OKI 937-2467

Okito Taxi, KAB: 634-5900, Foster: 637-5900, Courtney: 622-5900 (9 passenger vans available)

Toho Taxi, CHA 936-6393

Additionally, most taxi cabs will accept both yen and American dollars. You can also call the base operator on each base to connect you to an on/off base cab.

So readers, do you have a good reliable cab company that you use?

What’s the easiest place to “hail” a cab?

Do you have a good place that you leave you car-then cab?

  1. They will drive kids as well (Diako). A friend called to find out, just in case she had a couple of beers with dinner she wanted to find out. They said it could take up to an hour for them to arrive so be prepared. Weekends they are the busiest – but wait or wait for 6 months for a rides around the island?! Hell I’ll wait an hour for a cab-I’ve waited as long in NYC!

  2. THats some really good info to know about the taxi. Sometimes people come to Japan and dont realize the strict lawas about such matters as drinking and driving until it is too late. Now peopl ehave the cab phone numbers here thay have no excuse not to call when pissed
