Notice (Updated May 9)

We have received many comments about not being able to make open house reservations for Saturdays (June 4, 11, and 18).
We have adjusted and increased the number of reservation slots.
The additional reservations for these Saturdays will become available from May 15, at 20:00.
However, please note that the reservation system will not be available between 15:00 and 20:00 on May 15 in order to make these adjustments to the system.

Reservation for parking

Temple Annex parking is by reservation only. Due to the large number of visitors to the open house, the Temple Annex parking lot alone cannot provide a sufficient number of parking spaces. We ask for your cooperation in understanding the following policies before making a reservation, especially so that those with special needs can be prioritized.

■For your convenience, please use public transportation or nearby coin-operated parking. (The parking lot in Nishiazabu that was used before is no longer available.)
■Individuals with physical disabilities, the elderly, those with small children, and persons coming from far away, etc., will be prioritized for Annex parking.
■The number of cars that can be reserved: 10 cars per slot (each 2-hour slot)

For those who make reservations

<Please note the following before making a reservation.

Only passenger cars with a maximum height of 2.3m are allowed to park in the Annex parking area.

To reserve a parking space, you will need an “Open House Tour Reservation Number.” Please make an “Open House Tour Reservation” first, and have ready the “Open House Tour Reservation Confirmation E-mail” that you will receive upon completion of the reservation.


◆Please make a reservation from “Parking” on the reservation page below.

◆Please reserve a parking space 30 minutes before the start time of your reserved tour time.

 (e.g., if you have reserved a 10:00-11:00 tour, your reserved parking reservation should be 9:30-11:30).


After entering the required information, you will first receive an “E-mail for tentative reservation” and then a “E-mail for confirmed reservation” when your reservation is confirmed. The reservation will not be confirmed until then.

If you wish to cancel your reservation, please cancel your reservation from either of the above-mentioned [Parking Lot Reservation Email].

If you cancel your tour reservation, please remember to cancel your parking reservation as well.
