Car Hire in Japan


Discover locations in Japan

There’s a Japanese saying that translates to:  ‘Experience the beauties of nature, and in doing so learn about yourself.’

While Japan’s biggest and loudest cities like Tokyo have world class public transport networks, to see the real Japan and get to grips with its tranquil countryside, you’ll need to hire a car and leave the city behind…

Seeing Japan by car Looking to explore Japan? Drive along the Shimanami Kaido which connects mainland Honshu to the island of Shikoku. You’ll pass through six islands along the scenic route and can hop on and off as you fancy to enjoy the pristine beaches and clear waters.  If you get peckish, you’ll have to journey to the open air restaurant nestled amongst the Yamaguchi mountains for Japan’s best yakitori. If your travels take you to popular cities like Kyoto and Osaka, why not take a detour to Kobe? It’s worth parking the car here and staying the night so you can indulge in the sake distilleries in the Nada district. Skiing fans and hillwalkers are spoiled for choice: Mount Fuji and the snow-capped peaks in the Nakasendo Way are ready to be conquered.  Car hire made easy with Europcar Whether you need to hop in a car in central Tokyo or in rural Fuji, Europcar has pick-up and drop-off points near Japan’s main airports and railway stations all over the country.

Plus, you can pick out the model you like and make all the reservations online in a matter of minutes so you can just turn up and get going as soon as possible. Why not start planning your journey now with our map?
