About Us

World-class mega-city, TOKYO. We play an important role of providing the means of transportation throughout this city. Our motto is 'drive with your heart rather than with arms.' Every day we strive to provide safe and comfortable ride to every customer. Hinomaru Transportation Co. was found in 1991, when the parent company Hinomaru Limousine Co., a company with history and tradition founded in 1950, made an independent taxi department. Currently our 4 offices own 607 vehicles and have approximately 2,000 employees (as of 2010). We have earned a reputation as a leading taxi company in the metropolitan area.
