Naoki Doi
I have worked as a taxi driver since 1992 and in that time have guided more than 10,000 people around Kyoto. I have guided and had a good time with the former President of the United States, Mr. Clinton, and the Oscar winning actress, Holly Hunter.

When I first started guiding there was little information in English on Kyoto and most of the street signs were not in English. Kyoto was very popular with foreign tourists already then and it was difficult for them to easily and smoothly move around Kyoto.

I retired from a taxi driver because of legal retirement age. I am working as a TOUR GUIDE from now on. Thank you for your patronage of Doi Taxi for 30 years. I will give tours with my friend taxi drivers. Taxis are organized according to the number of customers.

I try very hard to give my clients great service in English and to help them in every way to have a good time Kyoto. I love Kyoto and I love my work and I would love to show you the wonders of Japan and this city. Thank you!!!

My 7-seater top-of-the-line van(HONDA ODYSSEY) assures passengers of spacious comfort and a good view of passing scenery as well as a smooth ride. Hand luggage fits in easily and the van's wide doors allow easy exit and entrance. The compactness of the interior also means I can provide you with an enjoyable narrative of the city's history and answer all your questions while touring.
