ANA has started a Jinrikisha service for passengers at Haneda Airport. Once you have cleared the security check and you are making your way to the terminal gate, the staff will ride you and your luggage in style for free.

The service started yesterday, 16 Aug, 2009 and has already become a popular hit with travelers.

The idea behind the ANA service is to give passengers a sense of adventure whilst also enjoying a traditional ride at the same time. The photo above some of the history of the Rikisha, whilst the one below sees people still enjoying it today.

    What a neat way to travel. Would like to try it some day, if I ever make it there.:) Great find, wonder if it’s comfortable?

      Not sure it would be that comfortable. I normally arrive late so the ride would be a good idea, but they would have to run fast 😉

    Lovely – but what do you do with the luggage?

      hold it over your head?

    I think that would be a great way to add to the experience of traveling in Japan for tourists, though I have to admit that I’d feel really lazy letting someone shuttle me around in an airport. ^_^
