Amphibious taxi debuts in Osaka

An amphibious sightseeing taxi made a debut in Osaka City on Jan 9, making Osaka the first city in Japan with amphibious taxi service.

The taxi is operated by Osaka Mizukaido 808, and could carry up to 3 passengers. A tour will cost 19,560 yen (~ USD180) for the first hour, and 8,700 yen per 30 minutes after that. [Hat tip to Japundit]

It looks cool, but the price seems a bit scary. We have other options for similar experience though… it seems that there is an amphibious bus sightseeing service in Osaka as well, called the Osaka Duck Tour, which cost around 3,000 yen for a trip.
