In case of rain, the event will be canceled. The decision to cancel will be posted on the park website on the day.

Getting to Shinrin Park

On event days, a free shuttle bus will run from Shinrinkoen Station to the central exit of the venue. This is the best option as there is no public transportation that brings you near the event and the distance is fairly far to walk.

Alternatively, you can drive and use the parking lot at the central exit. After 5 pm, the parking fee is ¥300/vehicle. Free for motorcycles.
