- Please make a reservation on their website or call +81-3-6859-6234 before you come to Japan. They said It is not possible to accept reservations at the store. Also I recommend you to select studless tires in case of snow. For 'Pick up location' and 'Return location' on NIPPON RENT-A-CAR website, please write 'Toyama Station North Exit'. and for options, it seems like you cannot choose studless tire(Snow tire), so please tell Sakamoto your reservation number after you reserve.
