Travel Photos Series#9-Rickshaw at Kawagoe, Japan

Kawagoe
Took this photo on 9 June 2014 when we visited Kawagoe, Japan for it's famous ancient architectures from the Edo period. Saw this rickshaw driver pulling an old couple along and I quickly snapped a picture of them with the Edo's buildings in the background. This is one of my favorite photos taken in Japan and I hope you enjoy it.

  2. Hi, is this kind of Rickshaw existing yet in Japan? Very cruel! I do not recommend to ride this Rickshaw as it is torturing a human!

    1. Hi Fon, thanks for visiting my site. The rickshaws exist in Japan now mainly for touristy reasons. They are mainly pulled around by young and strong men who seem to enjoy their work :-)

    1. I am going back to Kyoto (after a decade!) in November. Maybe I can give the rickshaw ride a try.
