having been living in Tokyo for most of 5 years I have mostly very good experiences. I remember on first arriving in Tokyo and taking a cab from Shibuya to my new home. Before we started he phoned my landlady to get my directions as I could not speak Japanese. In addition when we got to the suburb he stopped the cab to wait for her to arrive. When he stopped the meter I asked why in broken Japanese. He said I have to because you are my customer and we are waiting. It was a great start for me in Japan. On the other hand I did have one cab driver that I felt was talking me for a ride in both senses. I had been clear where I wanted to go for some reason he kept getting the location wrong. That can happen anywhere. Tokyo drivers are the best!
