Getting to Shinrin Park

On event days, a shuttle bus (¥300 per person) 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. The parking fee is ¥700/vehicle. Free for motorcycles.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
