We usually use public transportations like trains, subway, or buses. Most popular Japanese destinations have a very efficient network of public transportations and this is the most economical way.
However, at times, for our convenience and to save time, we may use taxis, but only if you agree (I will ask you during the tour). Please keep in mind that most Japanese taxis can hold up to 4 pax/vehicle.
If you need a private car for a day, the private car or van shall be hired for the duration of the tour at an extra cost. Applicable toll and parking fees are extra. Please inquire with me to pay the fares in advance.

I usually complete private tours as planned. However, please keep in your mind that this is your private tour. I do not rush you to move to the next destination so that we will visit and see everything. I want you to enjoy the tour at a pace you are comfortable with. But I also have to make sure that you do not miss your must-visit places. For this reason, we may expedite our tour by taxi from point to point with your agreement at additional cost. I really appreciate your kind understanding that we may have to skip or alter the itinerary during the tour based on your pace.
