If you are relocating to Tokyo, your national driver’s license will not be valid to drive a motor vehicle in Japan. If you intend to drive within the city, or to the outer surrounding areas, you will need to obtain a driver’s license issued specifically for driving in Tokyo. There are many driving schools that will not only train you to drive around the city, but will help you to earn the credentials to obtain your Tokyo’s driver’s license.
