I'm a licensed English tour guide who can provide a car having Japanese taxi license. I have just become independent this year after having 17 years experience as one of the top driver guides in the biggest limousine service company in Kyoto. You can not compare the price with the one which you need to pay to hire a taxi and a tour guide separately. ​ Please search "nagaokataxi kyoto english" to find me.

Friends from New York recommended that we see the far flung sights of Kyoto by hired car (which was right). Our family of five was too big for the car of the driver they had used, so we were referred to Kenji. That was lucky....More
