Won't Miss #24 - bigoted taxis

Though it is rarer in hard economic times, some taxi drivers in Tokyo will not pick up foreign passengers. This happens more frequently later in the evening or when there is high demand for taxis. They have excuses that range from the rational to the ridiculous, but if any such excuse were offered in a Western country, it'd be labeled for what it is.

I won't miss this overtly bigoted behavior on the part of taxi drivers.
