Optional Tour

Most of Tokyo's transportation relies on subways and buses. But how do I buy a ticket? Which train or bus should I take, and where from? tokyo-taxi.jp provides optional tours to support your Tokyo sightseeing and shopping. Japan's four seasons are enjoyable. Cherry blossoms in spring, fireworks and 'matsuri' festivals in summer, colored leaves in autumn, and wonderful Christmas illuminations in winter. We show you around Tokyo with a touch of the season. Please do not worry about the language. Our optional tours come with complimentary, worry-free translation services.
* If you would like to use translation services even when you are not in the taxi, you can purchase a Tel*Tell CARD that offers phone-based translation and three-party call translation services 24 hours a day.
