Sightseeing taxis

Sightseeing taxi charter with driver guide service

Custom charter taxi is a flexible and time-efficient way to enjoy your Okinawa experience. The taxi driver speaks English and will act as a tour guide so you can enjoy a focused sightseeing tour.

Sightseeing taxi service is based on a free plan: You can design your own Okinawa tour itinerary to suit your needs. Please provide us with the places that you would like to visit and we can estimate the time required for your route.

Since this is a time-based charter service, the rate is calculated according to how long you use the vehicle regardless of where you go or the number of places you visit. In addition, the driver is very flexible regarding sudden changes in itinerary to accommodate requests during your charter experience.

There are only a limited number of drivers that can guide in English-speaking drivers on the island. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to first make a booking to secure the driver, and then working out the details of the tour as you learn more about what is available to see on the island.

The charter time starts when passengers board the vehicle at the pick-up point and ends when passengers exit the vehicle. Payment must be made in advance. If your charter runs over the originally scheduled time frame, the additional charges must be paid directly to the taxi driver in cash in Japanese yen.

*All prices listed include tax.

Wheelchair accessible taxis are available. Please contact us for details.

Available languages for charter plan: English

Vehicle capacity:
The vehicles are standard-size taxis, and are only able to carry 4 passengers (1 in the front and 3 in the rear). Also, there is only limited luggage space so you will only be able to take any large suitcases. Please plan your luggage storage accordingly. 

Due to distance and traffic considerations it is not possible to do 4 and 5 hour tours of the north of the island when departing from Naha and the southern areas.
