Your taxi alternative in Kyoto

Kyoto is considered by some to be the center of old Japan, and is home to many of the country's most beautiful gardens, palaces and religious masterpieces. It is said in fact, that the city contains a over 1000 Buddhist temples! The changing season is something that is of particular significance to the Kyotoite population who celebrate the new growth of Spring, the cherry blossoms of Summer and the turning leaves of Autumn with full abandon. Local confectioners even create seasonal sweets in reflection of what is currently in bloom, and the city's famed Geisha change their hair ornaments 12 times a year in honor of these seasonal rhythms. But beware, Kyoto’s secrets may stay undiscovered if you have not put some thought or planning time into your trip. Whether you are in town for business, pleasure (or both), booking a Blacklane's reliable chauffeur service in Kyoto guarantees you a locally knowledgeable, English speaking chauffeur who is willing to divulge a little local insight and ensure you make the most of the time you have in this rich and interesting city.
