KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kumamoto

  • Car rentals in Kumamoto offer several advantages, especially if you plan to explore the region. Firstly, having a rental car provides you with the freedom to travel at your own pace and on your own schedule. You won't be reliant on public transportation schedules, which can be limited in some areas of Kumamoto. Secondly, Kumamoto is known for its beautiful countryside and scenic spots that might not be easily accessible by public transportation. Having a car allows you to visit these remote or less-traveled areas, including Aso-Kuju National Park, Kikuchi Gorge, and Tsujun Bridge.
  • Kumamoto is primarily served by the Kumamoto Airport (KMJ), located approximately 10.5 miles away. Major international and local car rentals in Kumamoto often have a presence at this facility, offering a variety of vehicles to suit different needs and budgets. The car rental center at Kumamoto Airport (KMJ) lies within the airport terminal building, in the domestic terminal on level 1. This location is convenient for travelers arriving at the airport, as it allows for easy access to rental cars immediately upon arrival.
  • You need to drive Kumamoto car rentals on the left side of the road, which can be a significant adjustment for visitors from countries where driving is on the right. Pay close attention to road signs, lane markings, and oncoming traffic. Japan has a limited number of roundabouts, and they are often smaller than those found in other countries. Approach them cautiously and yield to vehicles already in the roundabout. Remember to be cautious of animals in rural areas, such as deer, that may unexpectedly cross the road.
  • Kumamoto, like many urban areas in Japan, can experience road congestion, particularly during peak commuting hours and holidays. Peak hours are usually in the morning (7:30 am to 9 am) and evening (5:30 pm to 7 pm) when people are heading to or from work or school. If possible, avoid National Route 3 and Kyushu Expressway, as they are notorious for heavy traffic snarl-ups. Kumamoto experiences mild winters, but in mountainous regions you might encounter snow and ice. Snow chains and winter tires are often necessary in these areas during the winter months.

Fast pick up. Great little car and good on fuel. It would have been nice for the agent to tell us about the ECT in the vehicle for tolls. I know it's tough when you don't speak the mutual language so I think having a quick write up on it in English would be beneficial.
