“ Great Memory ”

The driver was very kind more than enough. He explained us history and culture of the places we visited. Fortunately my father who can speak japanese quite fluently accompanied me and my wife, we didn't have any communication problem withe the driver. The taxi was also very clean and arrived at meeting point 10 minutes ahead of schdule. I wish use your service again soon.

“ Great service! ”

This was a good option given that we had an elder tourist with us in Japan. We hired TR Taxi in Kyoto & Osaka, we would have hired them In Tokyo too, but they needed 3 days in advance to book. The drivers were very friendly & they drove us wherever we wanted to go & ha e us free advice & suggestion. Highly recommend this company I would definitely hire them again.
