culture shock

Untitled Recently we spotted this taxi in Kyoto waiting for the bride and groom to be whisked off to their wedding ceremony.

On the front of the taxi there was a fan and the kanji (chinese characters) for kotobuki (celebration).

Inside the taxi, there were also artificial flowers on the rear deck near the back window.

The back left wheel was covered with a white cloth, I didn't know why, but think that maybe it was so that the bride's kimono/dress wouldn't get dirty getting in and out of the car.

Too bad we didn't get a glimpse of the soon to be newlyweds, but I'm glad we got to see this unique taxi.
