Tips for choosing Private Charter Tours in Japan

In Japan, only “Green Label Vehicles” are legally acceptable for tour purpose and will be covered by passenger insurance. Besides, the driver of “Green Label Vehicle” must hold Class 2 license which is required when operating a commercial passenger-carrying vehicle such as a taxi or bus. Driver must be 21 years of age or older and have at least three years of experience driving under a Class 1 license. However, nowadays there are many services that provide charter tours at lower price by using “White Label Vehicles”, which by law are only allowed for private use only. In the event of a traffic accident, passengers on these illegal vehicles will not be covered by insurance. Therefore, for the sake of safety, we strongly recommend that visitors should choose a legal charter service.

Japan Tourism's charter service only provides green label vehicles and professional drivers at a reasonable price. Please feel free to contact us should you require any further information.
