Hinomaru Driving School (日の丸自動車学校) from Ebisu Garden Place Tower

Driving schools in Japan are big business. Unlike the USA, where most drivers pay little or nothing to learn how to drive and get a drivers license, Japanese drivers typically pay $3,000 – $5,000 to go to driving school and obtain a license. That’s assuming they pass on their first attempt. It costs even more if they don’t pass and then go back to driving school, etc. So it should come as no surprise that the schools can be fairly elaborate affairs in fancy buildings with color-coded cars, driving courses, etc.

The driving school in today’s photo is walking distance from the Ebisu and Meguro Stations in Tokyo.
