Overview of Car Rental
It is easy to get around without a car in many major cities in Japan for sightseeing, such as Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya. They are now accessible by train, subway, bus and taxi. Nonetheless, there are also other beautiful sightseeing locations worth visiting all over the country, but they are not accessible by car or necessary to visit by car. Without a car, it takes more time to get around with public transportations. Japan also restricted overseas tourists to drive a private car. Therefore, “Car Rental” provides an alternate way to explore Japan.
Car Rental branches are available at railway stations and airports in major cities. Overseas tourists can easily access these Car Rental systems. They just need to provide an international driver’s license (or driver’s license issued by their home country with the Japanese translated transcript) and a passport. Many public train, bus and taxi have English information available for tourists. However, some information might not have English translations, and tourists who do not understand Japanese will have difficulties getting around. With Car Rental service, getting around will be a lot easier because almost all the main roads in Japan, signs and directions are alternatively written in English. Navigation systems are available on most rental cars that can give you directions to your destinations.
