Exceptions apply) are convenient and money-saving options because they also offer discounted admission (100 yen less the normal price for individual adult ticket) to the Nijo-jo Castle grounds on the day of travel.

Visitor parking

For the safety of road users, and to avoid nuisance and pollution to local residents, visitors arriving by car are asked not to wait or park on nearby roads, and not to keep engines running when stationary. Coaches are asked to avoid residential roads such as Oike-dori, Omiya-dori, and Shinsen’en-dori. Parking spots for coaches become busy around 9:00, 10:30, and 13:30. To alleviate congestion, coach operators are advised to reserve their parking spaces in advance.
