taxi for 5 hours

does anyone know how to call japan and a number (from the US to Hakodate) so I can reach a taxi service for just five hours during the day next week?

We had a service but they have sky rocketed to $120.00 for just 5 hours, from $80.00 just two weeks ago.

Taxi companies in Hokodate (likelihood that any one speaks English at their office is slim), all website in Japanese but with phone and fax numbers


http://www.taxisite.com/sig/detail/427.aspx shows 3 hours taxi tour for 18550yen (180USD) which is about right

http://www.taxisite.com/sig/detail/615.aspx 2 hours tour for 10600yen

$120 for 5 hours(for the car) is a very good price.

Dialing Hakodate:


81 is the country code for Japan.

138 is the city code for Hakodate.

xx-xxxx is the six-digit number for the taxi company.

As the other poster said, they're unlikely to speak English. E-mail or fax is usually better.

Calling from the US, you need to dial 011 first:
