If your trip to Toyohashi is all booked but your travel itinerary is a little on the empty side, let us give you a few hints and tips.Not far from the heart of the city, Toyohashi Park is one spot you might like to consider putting on your to-do list. If you still have some space on that schedule, Yoshida Castle and Kalmia Mall will keep you occupied as well.
Toyohashi has some spectacular sights, but there’s even more to see in the surrounding area. How does a big-name attraction sound? Nagoya Castle needs no introduction. Located about 35 miles away in Nagoya, your travel itinerary just has to include this must-do sight.
Nothing screams vacation like jumping in the car, putting on some tunes and heading to the coast. Toyohashi has some terrific beaches nearby, so grab a book (and a kite if the wind’s blowing) and head to one of these beautiful options:
Takeshima Beach (10 miles away).
Arai Beach (10 miles away).
Nishiura Onsen Beach (12 miles away).
Having your own ride in Toyohashi will give you more freedom to squeeze in as many activities as possible. Maybe you’re eager to leave the city behind, get out on the open road, and go wherever the wind takes you. If so, grab the keys to one of our mid-size or full-size SUVs and explore the beautiful bays in the surrounding area. If you just want to experience the bright lights of the city, take to the wheel of something small. Zooming around heavy traffic and busy streets will be a whole lot easier with a compact or mini car.
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes your car choice important. If you’re about to embark on an amazing road trip around Toyohashi, a comfortable SUV could be the answer. If you want a fantastic bargain and plan on doing a lot of city driving, a versatile compact is a clever pick. All you need to do is decide what’s going to be the best fit, throw your bags in the back seat, and hit the road.
Driving in a foreign location doesn’t need to leave you gripping the steering wheel with white knuckles. If you’re headed to Toyohashi, get confident on the road with these helpful tips:
In Toyohashi, drivers stick to the left side of the road. This means the driver’s seat is on the right side. If your rental vehicle has a manual transmission, get used to shifting gears with your left hand.
In most instances, parking in central Toyohashi is stress-free. There’s plenty of on and off-street parking. Like every city, you’ll have to comply with the parking rules and regulations. Make sure you’re parked legally and you don’t overstay the time limit.
As with most destinations, you can expect slightly heavier traffic in the early and late rush hours. However, thanks to its smaller population of approximately 378,400, traffic jams aren’t a big problem in Toyohashi.
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your chosen car rental company may charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. This is the more common practice. Alternatively, it may provide your contact information to the relevant local agency so the fine is sent directly to you.
