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 "chonmage" samurai style and become a taxi driver.

After being turned down by more than 10 taxi firms, Hisae was finally hired a year later, and now drives the streets of Kyoto as a suit-wearing samurai.

In a country where few people speak English, Hisae says he wants to be a taxi driver that foreigners can feel comfortable with.
