Top tips for renting a car in Okinawa Prefecture

  • If you will be driving your Okinawa Prefecture car rentals with your kids as passengers, you should familiarize yourself with the child seat laws in the area. Kids under the age of six must be restrained in seats appropriate for their height and weight in the back seat of the vehicle. It is recommended (but not required) that children under age two use rear-facing seats, children between ages two and four use forward-facing seats, and kids up to age eight use booster seats.
  • It is impossible to cross international borders in car rentals in Okinawa Prefecture because Okinawa is an island. However, you may drive your car rental to different regions and cities on the island itself. However, if you plan to drop off your Okinawa Prefecture car rental at a branch that is different from where you picked it up, you should notify your car rental agency and choose the one-way rental option. You may be able to take your car rental on ferries to visit nearby islands, but the policy on this varies from agency to agency, so always ask your chosen provider.
  • Speed limits in Okinawa can vary depending on the type of road, but generally the limits are 60 km/h (37 mph) on normal roads and 100 km/h (62 mph) on major highways. The speed limit can get as low as 40 km/h (25 mph) on city roads. There are not many highways in Okinawa Prefecture, so be prepared to stay at a speed of about 60 km/h.
  • Drunk driving in Japan comes with severe penalties, including heavy fines and jail time. Therefore, it is important to note that the legal limit for drinking and driving is BAC 0.15%. While this is higher than in the U.S., you will still need to be careful and pay attention to how you feel after drinking and before getting behind the wheel.

This way, you have the freedom to explore the island’s attractions, such as the beaches in the city of Naha, on your own schedule and at your own convenience.

  • What is driving like in Okinawa Prefecture?

    The first thing to know about driving in Okinawa Prefecture is that you will be driving on the left-hand side of the road. This means you will pass on the right. The roads in Japan are also much narrower and tend to be more congested than in the U.S., so be prepared for traffic delays, especially in and around big cities. The roads are also quite dusty, so use extra caution during rainy weather as these can be slippery. Japanese drivers are calm and courteous, but you will need to watch out for cyclists on more rural roads. The main toll road is the Okinawa Expressway, and you can either get an ETC card to pay for tolls from your car rental company or use the manual lane, where you pay directly to the attendant.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Okinawa Prefecture?

    To rent a car in Okinawa Prefecture, you must be at least 18 years old. You must also have a valid driver’s license as well as an International Driver’s Permit (IDP). In addition, you will need your passport and a credit or debit card in your name in order to make payments. Some companies may also require proof of insurance, so be sure to check with your chosen car rental provider in advance.
