Japan 8 days self drive in Central Region – Summary Itinerary

We like to self drive within Japan outskirt cities, driving within major big cities is not recommended due to the heavy traffic and extremely narrow roads.  Most sign are posted in “Romaji”- in English which is readable for foreigner. If you read Kanji/Chinese Character, you have the advantage of reading both in the signboard.  I strongly recommend getting in a car and driving around the outskirt of Japan, this is the way to see the beautiful “inaka”/countryside of Japan.  It is also more economical than buying expensive “shinkasen”/bullet train tickets or normal train tickets if you have pax of 4.  Furthermore taxi cost a bomb in Japan.

Our rental car with 1500-1800cc cost about 9000-13500yen per day.

  1. This is so awesome! I believe that to get to know a place, it’s better to drive around it… you see way more. I also like to see smaller towns that show the culture than big cities full of tourists.

  2. Road trips are the best. They give you the opportunity to really see and experience the various places. You look like you had a wonderful time.
