Japan attractions and Travel Tips

Why rent a car in Japan?
With a strong cultural identity and an increasingly popular entertainment industry, Japan is a unique country. With anime, cherry blossom viewing, and heritage sites, Japan has something for everyone. The best way to see the country is by car, so read on for your guide to car rentals in Japan.

Rent a car in Japan - What's important to know?
1. Can I rent a car without deposit?
A deposit in the form of a credit card block is required to rent a car in Japan.

2. Is it possible to rent a car without a credit card?
Wherever you rent, a credit card is required to block the deposit for your car rental. HAPPYCAR does not guarantee that other forms of deposits will be accepted by the rental company.

What to do in Japan?
From sunny Okinawa to snowy Hokkaido, Japan has a varied climate. Every destination has its charm, but there are 3 major cities with their own distinct identities. They are popular tourist destinations and are easily accessible by car, which makes them perfect for a rental car in Japan:
  • Tokyo: The capital city and most well-known city, Tokyo has everything. It is a huge sprawling metropolis full of art, culture, food, history, and entertainment. Renting a car in Japan is a great way to explore Tokyo, as it is so big. The Greater Tokyo Area is huge and dwarfs most capital cities worldwide. This makes car hire in Japan a necessity just for Tokyo alone.
  • Osaka: Osaka is the top destination for foodies. Even within Japan, Osakans are known for their love of food. From takoyaki to sushi, and bento to donburi, Osaka has it all. The good news is, Osaka is also known for its bargains! Everything in Osaka is cheap and that includes cheap car hire in Japan. Osaka is a great destination for both foodies and budget travelers.
  • Kyoto: Kyoto is the historical capital of Japan and remains a center of history and culture. There are lots of famous shrines and castles in Kyoto. It's not uncommon to see women walking around in traditional kimonos. Some Kyoto destinations are very hilly, so finding a low-cost car hire in Japan is highly recommended for trips to Kyoto.
Thanks to its convenient location, Japan attracts many tourists. Plan your stay in the city ahead and find out in advance what the car rental company offers. With HAPPYCAR it's very simple - choose dates, compare offers and book the right car.
