Riding Rickshaw

My neighbor attests to the fact that Japanese Rickshaw drivers are amazing athletes! They are able to pull people around in their vehicles all day without complaint.

They also know their way around town well and at times can a be a good resource for information about the city they serve.

Rickshaws cater mostly to tourists these days, but there are locals who still use them to get around in, as they are much more maneuverable in heavy traffic than a car.

George had fun talking to these Rickshaw drivers.

These guys were not only highly physically fit, but they were charming representatives of their culture and city.

Seems like a crazy, but honorable way to earn a living.

Have you ever ridden in a Rickshaw?
