Getting Around

Car Rentals

Car Rental offers you the freedom to explore the sights of Niseko and beyond, and when booking with us we have your car waiting for you upon arrival for your convenience. Please note, all foreign drivers in Japan need to have their home-country license on them while driving, as well as an international drivers’ license issued by a signatory to the 1949 Geneva Convention. Without these, it is illegal to drive and your car rental will be cancelled without refund. Please check you have these documents before leaving your home country.

Please complete the Car Rental Enquiry form here and we will send you through a quote based on your specific requirements before confirming your car rental booking.
