KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hiroshima

  • There are several advantages to hiring a cheap car hire in Hiroshima. The most obvious advantage is the convenience and flexibility it offers. Having your own vehicle allows you to explore the city and its surrounding areas at your own pace and schedule. It also gives you the freedom to travel to places that may not be easily accessible by public transport, such as remote Japanese villages or mountains. By using a Hiroshima car hire, you can access some of the most iconic sites, which include the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, the Hiroshima Castle, and the Mazda Museum.
  • Hiroshima Airport (HIJ) is 50 km (31 miles) from Hiroshima. The car hire offices are located in the Terminal building on the First Floor. There is no airport shuttle to the car hire offices, but it's only a short walk from the domestic or international terminal. It is recommended to book your car hire in advance to ensure availability, especially during peak travel seasons. You can also pick up Hiroshima car hire at Matsuyama Airport (MYJ), about 70 km (43 miles) away from Hiroshima. The car hire companies are located in the terminal building on the 1st floor.
  • Driving in Hiroshima, Japan can be a bit different from what you may be used to. Firstly, motorcycles and bicycles are commonly seen on the roads, so drivers need to maintain extra vigilance and keep an eye out for them when driving cheap car hire in Hiroshima. Another thing to note is that Hiroshima has strict drinking and driving laws. The legal limit for blood alcohol is much lower than in most other countries, with a blood alcohol level of 0.03% considered over the limit.
  • Driving a cheap car hire in Hiroshima can be challenging, especially during peak traffic periods. Rush hour in Hiroshima typically occurs between 07:30 and 09:30, and in the evening between 17:00 and 19:00. During these times, roads leading to the city centre, including Higashisendaiborigawa-dori and Route 2, can become congested, resulting in slow traffic. Apart from rush hour traffic, there are also specific times when traffic in Hiroshima can become quite heavy. For example, during the annual Hiroshima Flower Festival, which usually takes place in early May, traffic can be gridlocked in the city centre.
  • Book your rental car in Hiroshima at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Hiroshima are around 18% more expensive than other car types, on average
