Tokyo Japan lluminated taxi signs

Signs on the roof of a Tokyo taxi, with another out of focus in the distance. The katakana on the green ball-shaped sign reads 'Checker', as in the famous American cab, and here, the name of the company. Each taxi company has its own logo and illuminated sign.

I love the illuminated taxi signs in Japan. They have a retro quality about them. At night, the glowing coloured light is reassuring and eye-catching. Photo taken by the taxi rank at Shinjuku, Tokyo.
