Pick-up Point was 50 Miles from the AirportThe staff made their best effort to accommodate us.When I request a car at an airport (NRT) I expect the car to be there, not in the middle of the city. I did not check the fine print. Fortunately the staff cancelled the original and accommodated us at some expense. Because of back problems, I parked in front of a grocery to buy some supplies, and was ticketed. It only took a couple of hours to work out the problem at the police station and return office since I speak Japanese. However, the fact that the navigation system did not work for the last two hours when I had to run around asking people for directions to locate the police station and car return spot did not help.

NothingThe policy about cancellation is greedy and unfair. I just missed the 48 hour window which by the way is very unusual and not clearly labelled in any of the emails or when booking and had to pay full price for a car I was not going to be using. Its ludicrous.

Top tips for renting a car in Tokyo

  • Experience Toyko in one of the best ways possible and enjoy the freedom that comes with Tokyo car hire. Rather than relying on the Toyko Metro, bus service or other modes of transport, you can explore the city and beyond at your will with a hire car in Tokyo. Drive into the city centre and check out Tokyo Tower before getting away from it all with a trip to Mount Tanzawa. A 1h 40min drive from the centre of this bustling city, you can get to the great mountain peak much more conveniently with a hire car than by taking another mode of transport, such as a bus.
  • About 17min and a 19 km (12 mile) drive from the centre of the city is Haneda Airport (HND), which is the closest airport to Tokyo. At this airport you'll find many popular car hire companies to choose from for your onward journey. At Terminals 1 and 2 you can hire a car from Nissan Rent-A-Car, which can be found in the arrivals hall of both terminals once you are through security. Other hire companies such as Sixt can also be found in this airport. To locate their branch, go to the ORIX Rent a Car office in the domestic terminal building, where you can catch a free shuttle to the Sixt office. There are no car hire branches in Terminal 3, however you can catch the Keikyu Airport Line free of charge to connect to the car hire branches.
  • Tokyo is a huge city that is popular with tourists all year round. Whilst it is illegal to jaywalk in the city, tourists may be unfamiliar with this, so keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road while you are driving. Lots of people in Tokyo use a bicycle as a means of getting around, so you'll see plenty on the roads. With traffic often very busy, cyclists will try and squeeze past cars. Be aware of this when you turn, as there may be a cyclists that you haven’t seen.
  • The roads in Tokyo are consistently busy in the city centre, though they will always be busier during rush hour (07:00 to 09:00 and 17:00 to 19:00) when people are going to and from work. Being the tourist hotspot that it is, you can expect busloads of tourists and cars on the roads throughout the year. If you’re driving through the famous Shibuya Crossing, for example, it is likely that you will experience delays of some form due to how popular it is. In the winter, Tokyo frequently gets snow too, so the roads are normally harder to drive on during the colder months and more accidents occur. If possible, refrain from driving your Tokyo hire car during very bad weather.
