Taxis are honest and not overly expensive.


Data point of one - we were in a taxi in Tokyo (pre-Uber - 2012) and I gave the destination.
The driver misunderstood me and was headed a different direction.

There was a language barrier.
Finally I was able to make my destination clear.
When we arrived he would allow me to only pay about half the fare on the meter -
I tried to pay full fare.
there was much apologizing.

peace & it'd be so much easier now
