Message from the president

あわら観光 株式会社 代表 松原 淑裕

Yoshihiro Matsubara
Representative director of Awara Kanko Co.,Ltd.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the patronage and support not only by our customers who have regularly used our taxis, buses and our travel service but also by all the parties concerned doing business with us.

Starting our business with “Kanazu taxi“, we have extended our company operations to chartered bus service and travel agency. Changing our company name when Awara City was born in 2004, we have continued our business until today. Currently, approximately 20,000 customers in total have used our taxi and bus services per year. Besides this, about 4,000 customers in this area have joined and made use of “Awara Tabi Club“, our travel plan commodity, per year.
We have recognized that safe driving is more important than anything else since we initially started our business with taxi service. All of us will continue to work diligently by sticking to the belief that safe operations is the very foundation of our existence and also our social responsibility.

Hokuriku Shinkansen extended to Tsuruga City in 2024. We are determined to work more diligently keeping our gratitude for our customers and the spirit of hospitality in mind, not to mention safety operations, for the sake of our customers both at home and abroad who will keep growing in number in the future so that our customers will tell us, “We are really satisfied with the service of Awara Kanko Co.,Ltd.“

I heartily request your continuous patronage and support in the future to Awara Kanko Co.,Ltd.
