Not to be confused with taiko… daiko is a unique type of taxi service in Japan.
A typical daiko service sends two drivers and one taxi.
代行 is made of the characters for ‘substitute’ and ‘trip/go’.
One driver will provide the customer with a ride and the other drives your car home.
Perfect if you had a tough day and ended up drinking at the bar and can’t drive home yourself.
Because in Japan, drink driving is black and white – there’s no safe limit. Any alcohol in your system is a no-no.
