Totally useless if you're not in a major city. I used to use the app's predecessor, JapanTaxi and could always get a taxi pretty much anywhere. If you're in a regional town or the countryside, you are always outside of a service area. Other differences: You not only now need a Japanese mobile # that accepts texts, but this only works with a Japan-issued credit card, so forget your foreign VISA/MasterCard etc. Finally although the interface was English, you will be prompted with Japanese fields.

If you are in Japan, don't trust this service. Might be useful in the cities, but not in the country side. Also, it has its own criteria to deny you from arranging a vehicle. One day after a taxi was arranged, Suddenly the driver cancelled it with no reason, but without any penalties.TOTAL BS.

Everything was ok the App posted the incorrect arrival time and said the arrive time would be 8-10 minutes later than I could wait. I needed to cancel but could not via the application. I can not speak Japanese good enough to explain to the driver. Free text in the App needs to be included to cancel and other items.
