Round of applause please. I just made a taxi reservation in Japanese!

Although I have been to Japan a bunch of times, there are still many things in Japan that kind of terrify me. Making taxi reservations by phone is one of those things that makes my heart beat fast and my palms sweat.

Why is it so scary?

  • communicating by phone is harder than face to face
  • there is just so much information to communicate (address, phone number, name, destination, time, date…)
  • I always doubt my planning and wonder if I will really be ready when the taxi comes

But I did it!!! I had to call 4 taxi companies before finding one that would pick me up. (The rest were all booked for tomorrow morning.)


Phew! Now I am going to treat myself to a warm bath.
