Trains are a quick alternative to get to the city center. However, there are two different train services at the airport. Sky Limited Express offers a faster journey, while Rapid Limited Express reaches Nagoya after a longer ride. Before you get on these trains, you must buy tickets from the booths.

Car Rental

It's easy to rent a car in Nagoya. Many car rental companies keep their doors open24 hours a day. However, renting a car in Nagoya is risky. The reason for this is that, unlike most countries of the world, the steering wheel of Japanese vehicles is located on the right side. For this reason we recommend using other options instead of renting a car.
