Osaka International Airport (ITM)
Car Hire / Rental
Located a short distance from Osaka's bustling downtown district, Itami International Airport (ITM) is home to several local car rental companies. Hiring a car at Osaka Airport has long been an attractive prospect for many visitors to the city, wishing to take advantage of the comfort and convenience that a vehicle of their own offers.
While car hire is available from a small selection of Japanese companies on arrival at the Osaka Itami Airport, we recommend that you book ahead if you are considering taking a rental car for all or part of your stay in Osaka. Advance reservations give better rates and a greater chance of securing the model of vehicle that you desire.
Car Rental, Driving and Rules of the Road in Osaka
As with the United Kingdom and Australia, the Japanese always drive on the right-hand side of the road and Osaka is no exception. To rent a car at the Osaka Itami Airport, it is essential that you obtain an International Driving Permit and valid drivers licence. Sign posts along all roads in the city are in Japanese only and so a guide may be useful, although most signs are fairly universal in appearance.
