Car Hire Information

Located on the main road between JR Niseko station and Country Inn Milky House, Nippon Rent-A-Car Niseko is a part of Japan's largest car-rental network with branches in every corner of the country. They have a wide range of vehicles available, from 4-seater cars to 30-seater buses.

Hiring a car in Japan is really very easy. The roads in Hokkaido are not crowded, and they are all clearly signed in both Japanese and English. In Japan people drive on the left; most cars have an automatic gearbox.
