Day trip by car from Kyoto?

Jump to last reply

Having experienced the joy of public transport in Japan, I'm happy to spend our entire trip using trains and buses. Husband, however, has got it into his head that he wants to drive in Japan. I have managed to talk him out of driving for the whole time we are there, but he has now said he'd like to do a day trip by car somewhere. As we'll have our longest stay in Kyoto, I think it makes most sense to do it from there.

I'm off to do various searches, but has anyone got any ideas of where might be a good day trip from Kyoto by car? Preferably not too long a drive - 1 - 2 hours max is probably the best, as we'll have a 3 yo and a 7yo with us. If it is somewhere relatively inaccessible by public transport that would be good too (or else I'd be tempted to just get the train and leave them to it!)

I'm guessing/hoping you can rent child car seats when you hire a car in Japan? (I'll be looking into it anyway - as it's a complete deal breaker if you can't)

Thanks!
