Who goes slow goes far…

Hello minna-san! How are you?

As every huge city, also Tokyo is a very fast one. People are often in rush: we walk fast to work, we push each other at the train stop, we fight for the first available taxi…
But there is a company that since a few years decided to help people to be… happily in late!

Their particular service is called “Turtle Taxi”, and it`s born from an idea of a japanese taxi driver, who ensures his passengers to go “the slowest possible”. This is perfect for all those persons who don`t love high speed, and most of all for all of them who are not in a hurry, as the Turtle Taxi allows everyone to enjoy at its best the view of the central Tokyo!

How does it work? Easy: when the customer pushes the “yukkuri” button, a calm music will start, the image of a turtle will appear on a screen, and the driver will suddenly slow down the speed. The service is quite popular among pregnant women, elder people, and tourists who wanna enjoy the city view, and the feedback is positive! So, if you are not in a hurry…
