Bicycle Running The City Of Shinjuku

Bicyce running wide street in front of Shinjuku Station

A bicycle ran the wide street in front of Shinjuku Station

Shot in the city of Shinjuku, Tokyo.

There is a big rotary in front of the west exit of Shinjuku Station. Although it is busy on the weekdays, it was deserted because it was a weekend. I stopped on the pedestrian deck and watched the flow of the traffic on the ground. The automobiles rolled by occasionally.

In the meantime, a bicycle appeared on the street. No cars ran around it. It ran the deserted street with a proprietary air. Looking closer, a box container was put on the rear part of the bicycle. The person on a bicycle seemed to be a deliverer of Uber Eats. It is becoming common to see deliverer of Uber Eats recently in Japan.

However, it is still uncommon to use Uber in this country. The service can provide only the dispatching service of taxis. It is needed to obtain an appropriate license to become a taxi driver in Japan. Therefore, those who provide the peer-to-peer ridesharing service without the license are seen as being illegal taxi drivers under Japanese low. As a consequence, this country is left behind in the global market.
