Tips on renting a car in Japan

Travel through Japan with complete freedom by renting a car

In Japan, traveling by car is the ideal solution for those who wish to venture off the beaten track or who dream of a  personalized itinerary. The car provides greater proximity to the regions visited thanks to total flexibility. Nothing stops you from taking short detours, making changes to your program as you wish, making an impromptu stop at the sight of a small pottery store or a sake brewery.

What is more, driving in Japan is a breeze: most road signs are translated into English, vehicles often have a GPS, most Japanese drivers are very courteous and speed limits are relatively low. There is no reason not to try it.
