When I worked at a conference, one participant from abroad asked me about our location because she was about to call a taxi from the Uber app.

I didn't know Uber's exist in Japan.

I thought it is not authorised as the Japanese government protects our own taxi companies, but when I looked it up, Japanese limousine companies undertake the Uber's operation.

That's why the taxi that the woman called was luxuryand and the driver are wearing white gloves.

I thought that ordinary people can be Uber's drivers with their cars.

However, there are some regulations in Japan, so the system seems different from that of other countries.
