Tokyo, Nov. 1 (Jiji Press)—Hinomaru Limousine Co. said Tuesday it will launch a taxi tour service in Tokyo to let foreign tourists interested in Japan's history and traditional culture experience the country's Edo period.

The new service, to begin on Nov. 10, will use tablet terminals with virtual reality technologies developed by Toppan Printing Co. that will make tourists feel as if they were traveling in the Japanese capital under the rule of Tokugawa shoguns between 1603 and 1867.
