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:

Private cars, vans, and transfers

Companies such as Japan Van, Green Traffic Travel ASKATours, GRT, CAB and Tokyo Chartered Cars can provide you a safe trip with a great driver, who often speaks only simple English.

We were a group of 4 girls traveling from the US and none of us had visited Japan before. Yuki spoke great English, helped us get our subway passes and JR pass and was a great tour guide for the day.
