Depending on your country of origin, or more appropriately the country where you learned to drive, transitioning to driving in Japan could be either totally straightforward or mind-bendingly confusing.
My friends and relatives visiting Japan always ask me this one question before visiting: should I rent a car? It really depends on which part of Japan you are visiting, but in general, unless you are visiting a major city like Tokyo and Osaka and planning to stay in the city throughout your trip, there are many benefits to having a car to travel in when you are here.
The love for cars, or motors in general, is one of those (expensive) passions that keeps amateurs very busy and entertained.
Japan has many different ways to travel cross-country. When all has been said about the common methods–bullet train, airplane, and bus–what is it like driving by automobile? This experience made me see a different side of Japan from behind the wheel.
Choosing the right rental company and vehicle is a tricky business, especially for foreign visitors. In Japan, as well as renting from individual companies directly, you can utilise comparison websites, allowing you to check multiple deals all at once! A great example of such a service is Tabirai Japan Car Rental.
