Shizuoka City Guide

For tourists looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, a relaxing trip to the hot springs in Atami is definitely in order. The city is mainly known for its onsen hot springs. Its name, in fact, literally means '?hot ocean.' The city is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park so it features a number of natural sites, interesting cultural attractions and historic monuments.

The city is fairly compact and it does have reliable transport networks but most travellers still opt to arrange for car hire in Shizuoka - Atami to get around. Before heading for the hot springs, they usually take the time to explore the most popular attractions around Atami including the MOA Museum of Art. The museum was opened in 1982 and houses the interesting collection of millionair Mokichi Okada - from Japanese calligraphy to pottery from the Tang dynasty as well as Matisse paintings and tea sets.

From there, tourists can also drive to the Atami Hihokan using a car rental in Shizuoka - Atami. The erotic museum is not exactly a destination for kids but it will attract eccentric tourists who want a different kind of holiday.

After that, the hot springs and onsen are every tourist's next destination with a car hire in Shizuoka - Atami. There are a number of onsens open all over the city. Further out, drive to the Nikkotei uphill or the Atami Marine Spa. Scuba diving is another popular leisure activity in the city. The diving sites feature spectacular sea life, corals and wrecks.

Entry into Atami is either through the Narita Airport or the Haneda Airport, both considered major gateways to Tokyo and the rest of the Kanto region. Atami is also located along the Shinkansen main line for those who want to get there by train.

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 is a worry-free label?

Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
