Tokyo Taxi Lights

The devil is in the details, and in Tokyo there are details everywhere. Perhaps, if I had it to do over again, I may have pursued a degree in industrial design.

I'm fascinated by all the little things that make Tokyo and many other cities unique.  Just when it seems that all cities are becoming more homogeneous filled with McDonald's, Starbucks, and other franchises from the east and west, you start to notice the little unique and quirky things that make each city, especially Tokyo unique, (i.e., hand-hole covers, vending machines, etc.).

I for one, love the little lights that go on top of the Taxis in Japan. There are all sorts of designs. I've only got one to share right now.

There's a great article about at the following link -
