Q: Do I need to reserve child seats for my children?

Driving with a child under 6 years old without a child seat is against the law in Japan (police will accuse and charge a penalty if you are caught).

Please be sure to request a child seat beforehand if you have a child under 6 years old.

You can add on child seats as an option when you book a car.

*One child seat requires the space for one and a half adults.

Please be sure to count the space of the child seat, bigger than 1 adult when you book a car.

*Please include children 6 years old or older in the number of adult passengers.
