Taxi brings to your destination directly! Besides, it carries your large baggages too.
The problem is the cost is expensive.
Some taxi companies adopt fixed charge for driving to Tokyo 23 special wards but it is still expensive. So, sharing the cost with plural passengers might be good!

I have heard Uber is popular in US, China and other countries.
However, it is NOT popular in Japan!!

So, I suppose a taxi is better than Uber.
