If you know anything about Japans ridesharing industry you know it is pristine and Uber has had a tough time breaking into it. However, this summer, Uber will now connect passengers with local taxi drivers in Awaji, a remote island of 120,000 people and a dozen taxi companies. In other words, Uber will begin its expansion in Japan as a taxi dispatcher. Baby steps Uber, Baby steps.

    When Japan does fully allow Uber do you think the drivers will have to wear gloves like the taxi drivers?
