Bus charters

According to new pricing rules for bus charter services implemented on April 1, 2014 by the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, prices for bus charter services (including sightseeing tours, airport transfers and private charters for any other purpose) must be calculated on a case-by-case basis based on itinerary, length of service, driving distance, etc.

If you wish to obtain a cost estimate for your charter from Island Life Concierge, please send an inquiry with the following information.

  • - Full detailed itinerary
  • - Pick-up and drop-off points
  • - Number of passengers
  • - Number of suitcases

Your inquiry will be responded to within two business days. Tour buses for charter tend to be booked well in advance especially during the peak season, so you are strongly encouraged to make your charter reservation as early as possible (at least a few months prior to the requested date).

Following the new pricing rules, the price estimates we provide may change and must be recalculated if any changes have been made to your itinerary. Please provide us with as much detail about your tour itinerary as possible at time of inquiry.
