Niseko is a convenient area to walk around, but for visitors looking to explore beyond Niseko, car rental with Toyota Rent-a-Car is available. Whether it's for catching first lifts in a nearby resort, visiting local onsen (hot springs) or simply going to Kutchan town for groceries, a car rental is an inexpensive and convenient option to get around.
If you are renting a car in Winter, make sure you are comfortable driving in the snow as it can be dangerous. To get started with a car rental, it's important to obtain an international driving permit that is valid for Japan and bring both driving licenses (your home country's driving license and the international driving permit).
The range of available vehicles and international driving permit requirements can be found through on Toyota Rent-a-Car website. These cars are great all-purpose vehicles, and can be fitted with English navigation systems, baby seats and ski/snowboard racks.
Please note pickup/dropoff locations are limited to New Chitose Airport and Niseko when booked through Vacation Niseko, and rental periods are calculated by 24-hour blocks.
