Taxi Crests

Japanese Taxi Crests

As Japanese manhole covers are unique to their area, so are the often ornate, Japanese taxi company crests on the roofs of taxi cabs in Japan.

Illuminated at night when vacant, these taxi cab signs advertise the taxi company the cab belongs to, or the motif proclaims that the taxi is independent and owned by the driver, although the cabbie will still probably be working through one of the larger taxi groups.

Common motifs for Japanese taxi signs are lanterns and symbols that represent the area's main characteristics or major products. Thus Tendo taxis in Tohoku have Japanese chess ( shoji ) motifs as Tendo is the major producer of Japanese chess pieces in the country.
