Miyagase Dam should be at the top of your list here. Lake Miyagase and Bessho Hot Spring are interesting attractions too. Locals will also probably point you in the direction of Katase Higashihama Beach, 30 miles away. If you can only see one thing here, make sure it’s Enoshima Aquarium. (But we’d also recommend Zushi Beach and Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu Shrine.)

  • Funabashi Sanbanze Ocean Park (12 miles away).

What kind of rental car should I get for Tokyo?
With landmarks like Tokyo Sky Tree and Tokyo Tower, it’s easy to see why Tokyo is a bucket-list destination. But if you have plans to hit the roads of this sprawling metropolis, it’s better to think small. A compact rental car will have you zooming about the frenzied streets and parking will be simpler. If you’re not into the idea of big-city driving, there’s a whole lot to discover farther afield. Pick up the keys to an SUV or a four-wheel drive and take in the glorious cliffs that Tokyo Prefecture is known for.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Tokyo?
For some people, owning a luxury vehicle is a little (or a lot!) out of reach. But renting the car of your dreams is far easier than you think! Picture yourself cruising the open roads in a swish sports car, even if it’s only for a little while. Or maybe you’re just after a budget ride to get you from A to B. Extravagant or economical? Whatever you decide, one thing’s for sure — there’s a rental car to suit you in Tokyo.
Is it difficult to park in Tokyo?

Does Tokyo have peak-hour traffic?
Tokyo has a population of about 8,336,600, so you’re likely to experience congested roads at some stage. For a hassle-free journey, avoid driving in the peak times before and after work — especially on major roads.

What are the rules around drink driving in Tokyo?
In Tokyo, it’s illegal to operate a vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol content) over 0.03%. If you plan to have a couple of drinks with lunch or dinner, you’d be wise to leave the car behind.
Is turning on a red light allowed in Tokyo?

Are seat belts compulsory in Tokyo Prefecture?
