I had a few bad experiences where drivers didn’t know how to fold the back seat up, let alone get the ramp ready. And a few where I was refused by the driver saying “I don’t know how, sorry”.
However, they have been getting better and I had 1-2 good experiences as well. I find that using the S.Ride App and selecting “Japan Taxi” is a good option because you can pair it with the Mirairo app and, because the taxi arrived from a call (as opposed to try to get in at a station where they can say “try another taxi”), they tend to try even even if not experienced.
