There are dozens of different taxi companies in Tokyo but almost immediately after the Japanese metropolis was awarded the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Toyota proposed a new model for its taxis inspired by the classic London hackney (aka, the black cab). Since then, almost a third of Tokyo's taxis have become these JPN Taxis, as the model is known. This Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics Toyota JPN Taxi Tomica is a superbly crafted 1/62-scale replica of one for your desk or shelf!
This is actually a collaboration with toy giant Takara Tomy and its immensely popular Tomica series of die-cast models. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics Toyota JPN Taxi Tomica is a detailed model of the original, complete with the official Tokyo 2020 and Olympics and Paralympic Games logos printed on the doors (one for each side). But unlike its real counterpart, the logos on this one will remain, reminding you of Japan's second edition of the summer Olympics and Paralympics and their Covid-19 troubles. One more unique item from the lineup of official Tokyo 2020 merchandise!
