If your trip to Yokohama is all organized but your travel itinerary is a bit on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.
You'll have to rise and shine if you want to see all the notable attractions that this place has to offer. Shinyokohama Raumen Museum and Yokohama Museum of Art are no-brainers. Landmark Tower and Yokohama Cosmo World shouldn't be forgotten either.
Near the city center, Makigahara Children's Zoo is one spot you might like to consider putting on your must-see list. If you still have some space on your travel itinerary, Zoorasia Yokohama Zoological Gardens and Yokohama National University will keep you amused, as well.
The best part about having a car is that you can travel anywhere, anytime. Make full use of your freedom by checking out all that there is to do in Hakone. It's just 31 miles away. Odawara Museum of Literature should be high up on your list here. Matsunaga Memorial Hall and Tombs of Hojo Ujimasa are fantastic attractions too. Situated 16 miles away, Yokosuka is another popular option. If you drop by, don't miss Tateishi Park, Manganji Temple and Daimyo-ji Temple.
No matter whether it's sunny or rainy, you'll be able to catch a glimpse of some of the magnificent beaches near Yokohama from the comfort of your own rental car. When you get near the ocean, keep your eyes open for seabirds circling over these stunning stretches of coastline:
Often travel for work-related purposes? Convention centers are probably familiar places to you. With easy access to hotels and restaurants, your trip is sure to go off without a hitch if you're heading to any of these places:
Here are our top tips on how to hop behind the wheel of a rental car with some extra cash in your pocket:
Having your own set of wheels in Yokohama will give you more freedom to go wherever you want. Maybe you're planning to leave the big city behind, explore the country laneways, and go where the wind blows. If that's the case, collect the keys to one of our SUVs and have a look at the active volcanos in the surrounding area. If you'd prefer to experience the bright lights of the city, go for something small. Dashing around bumper-to-bumper traffic will be a lot less stressful in an economy or compact car.
You'll be pleased to hear that there's an impressive variety of luxurious vehicles to rent in Yokohama. What you end up going with depends on how much you're willing to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty vehicles are all about mod cons and comfort. If you feel like splashing out, why not go for a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a cushy mid-size sedan? Alternatively, if you just need something to get from A to B as efficiently as possible, stick with a versatile compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
