Top tips for renting a car in Tokyo Prefecture

  • The city of Tokyo is one of the largest cities in the world, while the greater metropolis is considered the most populated. The streets are often packed with pedestrians and other vehicles—cars, buses, bicycles, scooters, and more. With such well-used roads, you’ll want to select a rental car that provides you with some agility. Consider renting a small or compact vehicle for your trip, especially if you plan to spend a majority of your time within the city limits.
  • There are almost 20 locations for rental car companies throughout Tokyo. So if you want to secure a rental car for only a portion of your visit to the area, you will have a number of opportunities to either pick up or drop off a rental vehicle. Of course, you’ll want to make note of any rental car company preferences, since not all companies necessarily have a presence at each of these spots.
  • Beyond the greater Tokyo metropolitan area, there is a lot to explore, including a vast array of hiking options for those of you who may be inclined toward outdoor adventure. If your objective is to explore off the beaten path and beyond city limits, you’ll want to secure a four-wheel-drive vehicle for your rental period. In the winter months, you may even want to secure chains for your tires.
  • The journey between two points within the city of Tokyo can be a bit tricky to navigate, so you’ll want to make an effort to plan your routes in advance of your departure—this is still the case if you are using a rental vehicle that is equipped with a GPS, especially with a large number of other vehicles and pedestrians on the roads.

  • Should I rent a car in Tokyo Prefecture?

    Tokyo offers visitors an extensive array of options for public transportation. What’s more, the operating hours for these options tend to provide travelers with significant coverage during the day and night. That said, some paths between two points in this behemoth city may require you to change from one route to another, or even change to a different vehicle. For this reason, it may be wise to choose a rental vehicle for some, or all, of your journey. A rental will provide you with more autonomy over your travel schedule. Furthermore, it will give you the freedom to extend your travel adventure to other locations on the island.

  • What is driving like in Tokyo Prefecture?

    Tokyo roads have all the modern accommodations that make driving comfortable. The area’s people are also friendly to international tourists. The street signs are marked in both Japanese and English, so you don’t have to be concerned about translating on the fly. One particular detail to note, however, is that roads operate similarly to those in the United Kingdom—the driver’s side of the car is on the right and vehicles run on the left side of the road. However, you are not allowed to turn left on a red light. At a traffic light, you must wait for the appropriate signal. Pedestrians and cyclists are required to travel on the right-hand side of the road; you’ll want to note that they also have the right of way on the roads.

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

    The minimum age for renting a vehicle in Japan is 18 years old. This is also the minimum age to be able to drive in the country. Travelers who are visiting the country will also need to acquire International Driving Permits (IDPs) in order to secure their rentals. Take note, IDPs cannot be obtained once in Japan; they must be secured in your home country before your departure.
