Tatsuo Hisae works for Kyoto’s Rakunan Taxi service. He won a one million yen lottery and set the money aside for a trip around the world, which he had dreamed of since he was a child. When he finally went ahead with the trip and returned home, inspired by his many conversations all over the world, he decided to tie his hair up in the traditional samurai style and become a taxi driver. After being refused by over 10 companies he was finally hired a year later, and now drives the streets of Kyoto as a suit-wearing samurai.
