A late evening street photo with a traditional rickshaw, Tokyo, Japan.


A story behind: On the streets of Tokyo one can frequently spot a characteristic Japanese rickshaw (or ricksha / Ginrikisha  / 人力車) pulled by a person on foot.
The price is around $50 for scenic ride around town.
Japanese rickshaws were invented in 1869 in Tokyo and soon there were over 40,000 rickshaws in Tokyo. The popularity of these ginriksha (human powered car) spread like wildfire.
