Sapporo Guide

Sapporo is not only the 5th largest city in Japan but also home to great restaurants, superb foods and grand festivals. Simply use a one of the public transportation options or car hire and you will be off seeing this remarkable city.

Sapporo has taken fame to the fact Meso Ramen was born in their city. This version of ramen noodles using mesa is very popular among locals and tourists. In fact, there is an alley designated to ramen restaurants that was established in 1951.

Soup Curry is also a famous dish. This liquid curry combined with vegetables and rice is a superb specialty that graces the tables at city restaurants.

Sapporo Sweets hold a yearly competition that was inspired by the confections that are prepared using ingredients from tokkaido.

Several landmarks not only provide a look into the history of the city but also the awesome architecture that will leave you awe struck. Sapporo Beer Brewery, a famous beer and brewery establishment, has old buildings still in existence. Sapporo Factory was one of the former breweries and now houses a shopping center that includes offices, restaurants and movie theaters.

Another famous brewery with the company provides tours of the museum housed in the building.

Parks and Gardens are abundant throughout the city, holding festivals and gatherings yearly.

Odori Park hosts events such as Sapporo Lilac Festival, Sapporo Snow Festival and Yosakoi Soran Festival. Nakajima Park offers landmarks and beautiful scenery as well as historic architecture.

A big draw yearly for Sapporo is the Snow Festival where participants compete building elaborate snow and ice sculptures. Yosakoi Festival highlights a competition among dance teams dancing to traditional Japanese music. They compete based on their skills and perform on roads and stages set up specifically for the event.

All these attractions and landmarks are just a ride away. Whether you use rapid transit, bus or car hire you will have a memorable time.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
