Toyota Rent-a-Car

Hey guys,

I am currently staying in Hiyoshi, Kanagawa, and will be moving to Ikebukuro as well as pick up my friend from the airport in end November.

I have a bicycle with me and I was thinking that the best way to move my stuff to the apartment in Ikebukuro and pick up my friend from the airport would be to rent a car for 12 hours.

Anybody has any experience with Toyota Rent-a-Car, and whether is this the most ideal method for my situation?

i honestly dont know about driving in japan as i dont have any practical driving experience but from what i do know from reading up, is that, you have to

1) have a IDP
2) have your licensce with you.

i thought of renting a car and driving around in okinawa, it turns out that most companies do rent out kei vans as well. usually vans are cheaper by quite a bit. if its just you and your friend, getting a van might be cheaper.

might be more practical for you too and do make sure you plan your parking spots.

parking is a bitch in central tokyo. dont drive without planing. are you willing to pay like 24 bucks a day for parking ? i know night parking alone usually costs about 1k-1.5k yen. that alone is about 1/3 the cost of rental for a small car.
