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 in October or 4:30 pm in the November, the parking fee is 300 yen/vehicle. Free for motorcycles.
