    Hello, I read from some website we can book accessible taxi for local travel. Anyone has such experience?

    Accessible taxi online reservation services are available in major city like Tokyo and Osaka.
    Although all written in Japanese, here is the list of accessible taxi services in Tottori City.

    Accessible taxi services are available all through Japan, but it’s no easy for visitors to book them because they are not ready to welcome visitors on their sites unfortunately. Thanks to online translation service such as Google Translate, it may be possible to communicate and book over phone lines.

    Tottori actually has the highest ratio of regular to accessible taxis in Japan (remember, though, there aren’t as many taxis as more populated areas, just a higher percentage).

    I went there on a test-tour sponsored by Tottori, so I didn’t do the booking but we rode in a taxi with a lift and saw accessible taxis waiting at the station.

    The site on Accessible Japan has a list of taxis for the area, but unfortunately only phone numbers. If you are staying at a hotel, or have a travel agent that speaks Japanese, they could maybe call for you.
