The surroundings of Ise Jingu are extremely busy during the New Year. This year, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the province is asking the people to visit the temple on weekdays or in the beginning of February.
* Between the 6th (Wednesday) and the 29th of January (Friday), 2021, the Naiku A and B car parks in Uji, in the city of Ise, will be free for 4 hours only on weekdays. For more details, click here (in Japanese only).
To ease traffic, the organization installed a temporary parking lot near the Sun Arena and will provide shuttle buses to the surroundings of Geku and parking lot Naiku of Ise-Jingu. The hours will change according to the days, so be careful.
The shuttle bus is free, but you will need to pay a parking fee of ¥ 1,000 per vehicle. The organization asks the visitors to show the parking fee receipt to the person in charge before boarding the bus.
