Japan is a country with excellent submarine and bus networks, but sometimes you will need a private car to reach some remote areas. Here, there are many beautiful places located away from the trail, accompanied by a scarcity of hotels. Those who love to explore nature will find it difficult to find suitable accommodation because they have too few options.
However, where there is difficulty means there is an opportunity to get rich. The car rental company Niconico Rentacar quickly seized this opportunity and launched a "money-making" solution: leasing cars that were "level" into mobile bedrooms.
This Daihatsu Wake car is not a small mobile home. It is a Kei-car vehicle of Japan's smallest compact car.
But thanks to some small details, the Wake has turned into a place to sleep overnight. Like most Kei-car models, Wake's box frame allows to create ultra-wide spaces in the car. When folding the entire chair, spreading the specially designed mattress provided by Niconico Rentacar, you will have a huge super big bed 185cm long.
But lying down while the window was transparent, it seemed a little lacking in privacy. Therefore, Niconico Rentacar also offers customers a set of curtains. You can use blinds to shade (if sleeping to noon) and create a private space.
Niconico Rentacar said that this service called "Nicohaku Plan" is very suitable for those who love outdoor activities at early morning or late evening, such as going fishing or mixing with nature. These are the two times when buses and trams are not working so a bed car will be a perfect salvage solution. On the official website, Niconico Rentacar is proud to affirm, a Nicohaku will help you. Save more than renting a hotel.
To use the service for 2 days 1 night, you will need to spend 10,000 yen (2.1 million VND). If you want to stay for one more night, the additional fee is 7,000 yen / night (1.5 million VND). Currently, Nicohaku car service is provided at some Niconico Rentacar locations, including Hachioji Horinouchi in Tokyo, New Chitose Airport in Hokkaido – one of the best places to travel by car in Japan.
Compared to the hotel room, Nicohaku car is not inferior to … except the bathroom. But in Japan, you can easily find hot springs everywhere, or the public baths will always welcome you.
