Rental Car in Hakuba

Car Rental Hakuba

As Hakuba can be a bit car-centric, renting a car is the perfect way to get around Hakuba in both the summer and winter.

Renting a car in Hakuba

The best place to rent a vehicle is from Samurai Rental Car at Narita or Haneda Airport. They provide good quality vehicles that include snow tires, ski racks and a free ETC card at a very reasonable rate. This gives you the ultimate freedom to come and go as you please and skip the buses and trains. It's much cheaper as well.

The second best place to rent a vehicle is in Nagano so that you can get a newer car with a proper English navigation system and you can avoid having to take the bus or taxi from Nagano to Hakuba.

Toyota Rent A Car, Nissan Rent A Car and Times Car Rental are located near the bullet train station, making it easy to transfer. Using a nationwide rental company is also helpful if you want to return the vehicle to a different location, such as the airport.

If you are our guest, please let us arrange for the perfect vehicle for your holiday, or you can stay at one of our accommodations that includes a rental car on select dates during the winter.

If you want to rent a vehicle after you arrive in Hakuba, there are four rental car companies to choose from. All vehicles from these local shops will have 4WD and ski racks included.

Windy Car Rental - open year-round and the most experienced rental shop in Hakuba.

Freedom Car Rental - is closed for the 2021/22 season due to the borders being closed.

Please remember to bring your valid international driver’s license as you will not be able to rent a vehicle in Japan without it.
