Do you have any troubles with travel in Japan?

It is boring to join a typical package tour.
I've traveld big cities like Tokyo. I wanna visit other area I haven't been.
I heard it is not easy to travel rural area due to poor public transportation.
I don't want to be annoyed luggage plobrems.
Transpotration fee is always too costly.
I don't want to be annoyed luggage plobrems.
How about 

travel by a rental car?

You can travel anywhere!

There are many sightseeing spots which are really timeconsuming or impossible to reach by public transportation. If you drive by yourself, you can visit much nicer places.

You can control your own schedule.

Public transportation system in rural area are totally different from big city.
If you miss a train, you need to wait for next one for a long time.

If you drive by yourself, you will not use public transportation and you don't waste your time to wait for a train and bus an also don't need to walk from a station to your hotel.

No needs to worry about your luggage!

Luggage are one of the most troubling aspect of travel. Although it is short distance, walking with big luggage is tiring and time consuming.

If you drive by yourself, you can just load all of your luggage and souveniors to cargo space of your car!

Lower Price!

You need to pay a lot of cost for JR-Pass or Bullet train ticket if you are traveling in a big group.

Car rental will be more economila way!

Driving in foreign country is extremely interesting.

Driving in foreign country itself is an adventure! It must be highlight of your travel.
Additionally, country side of Japan is very easy to drive. It may be easier to drive in Japan than you country.
"Drive Japan" will let you know Japanese traffic rules and tip as well.

Because of these advantages, number of cars which are rented by foreign tourist are dramatically increasing.
However, to plan good driving route, you need to check and know a lot of things like geography, location of sightseeing spots, accomodations, seasonality and so on.

It is time consuming and tiring.

Drive Japan give you the best solution!
