KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kagoshima

  • Car hire in Kagoshima is one of the preferred choices among visitors who want to explore the seaside city and the rest of Kyushu Island without relying on the loop buses in the city or trying to figure out the local transport schedule on the island. You'll also avoid paying notoriously high taxi prices. You can take time out to tour Shiroyama Park in the city before driving to the docks and catching a ferry to the famous Sakurajima Volcano. When you get back, you can take a drive out to the Shoko Shuseikan Museum, all without waiting on other schedules.
  • Kagoshima car hire at Kagoshima Airport (KOJ) is ideal because it'll likely be your arrival and departure point for your trip and you can avoid using public transport to get to and from the city. The car hire companies don't have dedicated desks in the airport, but you can book online through KAYAK with companies like Europcar, Alamo and Nippon Rent-A-Car. A company representative will wait for you to arrive by plane and then escort you to your vehicle.
  • Using car hire in Kagoshima is generally easy, from collecting your vehicle to driving in the city. The roads in Kagoshima are wide and usually easy to drive on. Japanese drivers are respectful, even if they sometimes seem in a hurry. Don't be surprised by them trying to overtake when there isn't space to do so. Traffic lights help to control the flow of traffic and there aren't many traffic jams in the city. Once you're in the city centre, you may need a GPS to rely on, as some roads are one-way and there isn't much warning. Be aware of pedestrians and cyclists.
  • There shouldn’t be any difficulties driving in Kagoshima; the roads are well kept, traffic moves slowly and smoothly and there are road signs in English throughout the area. You may occasionally come across an aggressive driver who's trying to get somewhere quickly or have to avoid a cyclist or motorbike on the side of the road. Generally, driving in Kagoshima is easy.
