Getting To The Festival

As we expect several tens of thousands of visitors out to enjoy Japanese culture, traffic in and around Hermann Park will undoubtedly be heavy and road closures are likely.  Moreover, parking in the area is limited.

Please plan your trip accordingly.  To avoid getting stuck in traffic and seeking out a parking spot, we strongly recommend use of alternative transportation.

For your convenience, we urge you to ride METRO Bus or METRORail to Japan Festival. 


METRORail: The Hermann Park/Rice U METRORail stop at Fannin and Sunset will put you right in the heart of the Park only a short walk from Japan Festival.



The METRO Fannin South Transit Center, which is conveniently located on the METRORail Red Line, is only six (6) stops from Hermann Park.  The Transit Center will be open and available for parking at $3 per car.
