Nagoya Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO)
Car Hire / Rental
Located south of Nagoya, Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO) offers a range of national and Japanese car rental outlets. Visitors can make the journey from the Nagoya Airport to the city centre in about 20 minutes.
While driving conditions in Japan's big cities have a reputation for being difficult in terms of orientation and traffic build ups, the country's rural areas are a lot easier to negotiate and many visitors choose to rent hire cars in order to explore these areas.
While car hire is available on arrival at the Nagoya Airport complex, you can't guarantee you will get the exact make and model that best suits your driving requirements unless you book before travelling. Pre-booking also invariably ensures that you get a better rate than you would upon arrival at the airport.

The city centre can become extremely busy during the peak hours and is best avoided at these times, when empty parking spaces are often difficult to locate.
A vast car park with more than 4,000 spaces can be found at the International Exhibition Hall, next to the Port Messe. Nagoya is a bustling city, full of energy and exiting projects, with major roads including the Second Tomei-Meishin Expressway, the Linear Chuo Shinkansen and also the Chubu Expressway.
