Meet Ikuta Kana, Japan’s Most Popular & Prettiest Taxi Driver



If you’ve ever been to Japan, was there a time where you needed to use a taxi to get from one place to another? Taking a taxi is one of the most used forms of transportation in Japan and you probably have heard of many things about the taxis here.


While getting stuck in traffic is often considered hell on Earth by most, it can well be the opposite if you’re riding in one particular taxi in Japan driven by the beautiful Ikuta Kana, the country’s most popular taxi driver.


Ikuta Kana who was born on December 18, 1991 in Nagano Prefecture, is a professional taxi driver and a model at the same time.


She debuted as a gravure model and had gained plenty of attention.


Ikuta started out as a model, but with the unstable work, schedule, and pay, she had to look for another solution.


The part time model and part time driver has been roaming the streets of Shibuya, Ebisu and Naka-Meguro for a year and a half now.

Getting to ride a taxi in Japan with a female driver is such a seldom sight, especially when your driver happens to be a beautiful model!
