Why do Japanese taxi doors open automatically?

It could just be the famous Japanese service and attention to detail, but I noticed the other day that it isn’t both back doors but only the pavement side one. I wonder if they have to have it by law in order to stop people getting out of taxis into the street

    I don’t know, because you can still open the traffic-side door manually from the inside…it would seem that it is a courtesy to passengers.
