Tokyo Sightseeing Taxi services enable tourists to comfortably enjoy sightseeing in Tokyo with peace of mind. Operated by knowledgeable drivers, who provide high-quality service, the taxis also offer tourists more flexibility with regard to schedule and tour content. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) is working to promote awareness of Tokyo Sightseeing Taxi services with the aim to improve overseas tourist satisfaction.
