Discover Japan makes a couple of very nice promotion videos for renting a car to drive around and explore the countryside. I don’t know about you, but I love driving, and wherever I go I want to have control over my movement, my schedule, and to get around under my own steam. If that sounds like you, I highly recommend this as an alternative to the bus and train. Of course, make sure that you have a proper international drivers licence. This should not be too difficult as most countries have such driving agreements with Japan. And, and this is very important, make sure you know what side of the road you need to drive on…

And now into Shikoku! Oh yeah…
