Japanese companies tend to do a lot of gimmicks in their service. And of course, this means that they would often go the distance for these gimmicks. One such company is Yokohama-based taxi service, Sanwa Kotsu, which has a service featuring unique taxi drivers. This includes one service which has a ninja of all things driving you around town.
These ninja drivers will even speak to you in period-appropriate Japanese vocabulary. Yes folks, you better prepare for some old school Japanese when you get this service. This would certainly be a treat for any history buff. However, don’t expect them to carry around real shuriken, ninjato, or kusarigama. They’re not exactly armed to the teeth unless you count the car as a weapon though.
But if ninjas aren’t your thing, you can also go for the company’s “SP-style taxi” service. It features an armed bodyguard to drive you around like you’re a VIP. However, don’t expect these drivers to pack some real heat, as their weapon of choice are water pistols.
Kanwa Koutsu has started these taxi services last 11th June, so interested passengers can now book them. And if you don’t speak Japanese, don’t worry, because they also have an English language website as well.
