You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Hakone's minimum age to rent a car?

What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Hakone?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Hakone. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Hakone getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Hakone.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to Hertz.

Hakone certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
