“Sadako Taxi” can be dispatched through the taxi app “S.RIDE”, and users will be greeted by Sadako’s visuals from the taxi window. In addition, the new signage inside the taxi will show a bonus video limited to taxis, and we will prepare powerful original content such as AR measures using smartphones where you can experience Sadako crawling out of the signage. I’m here. Not only can you experience the world of the movie before boarding and while traveling, but you can also call Sadako using the taxi app.
