The taxis in Japan were ridiculously nice. Every one I took was immaculate on its exterior (shiny as pictured above) and interior, had nice seat covers, and was driven by a courteous gentleman in a full suit with white gloves. The ride even felt safe, as if the driver were focusing on our comfort and pleasure instead of on getting as many fares as possible during his shift.
