Information on Charter Bus Companies（For tour companies）
Last Update : 2016/6/17
A sharp increase in the number of inbound international visitors has caused an insufficient supply of charter buses. Therefore, since April 2014, charter bus companies have been temporarily allowed to operate in an extended area beyond the prefecture from which they obtained their business license, on the condition that operational safety in the extended area is ensured.
However, when a demand for charter buses spikes due to an increase in international group tours in a specific region or during a certain time of year, charter buses are sometimes not readily available.
In view of this, we have added the following information (regarding charter bus companies and their efforts for operational safety) to our website in multiple languages for the benefit of overseas tour companies and Japanese travel agencies:
