Yokkaichi Guide

Yokkaichi has always been known as a market town. Many years ago it was a popular night post for many travelers. Over time this town has developed into a port town. In 1872 workers built port facilities on the town and soon many ships laid anchor there. In 1899 this city became an official international port. The port candles cotton, wool, glass, and heavy equipment. Yokkaichi is the largest city in Mie Prefecture. Chuo-dori Street is a 70 meter wide road that leads up to the JR Yokkaichi Station which is located on the eastside. The camphor tree is a symbol of the city and these trees line this popular street.

There is much to do and see for entertainment in this town. The Big Yokkaichi Festival happens every year on the first weekend of August. This event has been going on since 1964. During this festival you will see drummers, shrines, and floats as they stroll down the streets. You will also experience a parade known as the Dream Parade. The Kenka Festival is held on August 14th and 15th and this festival is held to chase away bad spirits and welcome in good ones.

While you are visiting this great town you will want to visit The Port of Yokkaichi. This port is only 13 minutes from the bus station. You should also visit a wonderful teahouse known as Shisuian. The shisuian is known for serving the locally famous Ise tea. This tea is considered a luxury in Yokkaichi. There are also very famous ceramics that you will be able to see in many local shops.

Pollution has been a problem for this city. In 1965 a law was passed to fund pollution relief for many patients that were actually suffering from the pollution. 440 billion yen from private government funds have been given to this town to enforce antipollution policies. Pollution is not as bad as it used to be in this town of Yokkaichi.

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 is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. 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.
