Wouldn't ride it if I wen't to their nation of otaku. If I got the ride for free... Now that's another story.

Haha, how cute ^^ Again with the ferry thing though, it's sad that Japan has to resort to something like that to ride a taxi.

That could've gone wrong in so many different ways. Fortunately, it hit them all.
