Where to get car, van, bus tours & transfers in Tokyo and Japan?

by Coelho - TripleLights travel specialist

Most people who visit Japan, prefer doing their tours using the reliable public transportation, which includes trains, subways and busses, with occasional use of taxis. However, many tourists prefer doing the tours with a nice and comfortable car instead, especially people with short time tot ravel, big luggage, or special needs.

Private Cars, Van, Transfers, and Bus Tours

If you decide that other options are the best for your trip besides a private tour guide, here are some other options you can consider:

Eiko was organised, extremely amicable and flexible in our itinerary. We probably took on too much being our first day after long flight with a 12 year old but she was very understanding.
