Hey I am going to Japan in August and I haven't booked my return ticket yet. As everyone knows this seems to be one of the most expensive countries for traveling in Asia and I've read that it is everything but cheap to take planes/busses/taxis for getting around.
I love driving and I would love to do such a trip as I did it in Scandinavia:
driving, driving, driving; sleeping in the car, tent or hotel; driving; driving
because I really like to travel individually.
Has anyone of you done something like this before and do you recommend it or would you say that this isn't the best idea at all?
Can you recommend any car rentals? I've been comparing some and so far it looks like renting a car in Japan is wayyyy more expensive than in e.g. US.
Is there any website suggesting a possible route to go by car? So far I know NOTHING about this country.
Thanks a lot for your answers, Alex
