Is driving recommended during my Japanese Vacation?

If you have planned your Japanese vacation through us, then there is no need to drive. All of your transportation is included in the price of the tour. On the other hand, if you are going to extend your stay outside of the tour, then you may want to consider driving to reach some of the rural areas. There are different rules for driving in Japan when compared to the United States and you must be familiar with these rules before you start on your journey.

Driving rules to know on a Japanese Vacation

There are two main driving rules you need to know when you are on a Japanese vacation. The first is that people drive on the left side of the road in Japan, opposite from the United States. The second is that the speed limit is in kilometers per hour and not miles per hour. This is important because 60 KPH is only 37 MPH, so you would be going almost double the posted limit if you travelled at 60 MPH.
