Visiting RIKEN by car

At Wako Campus, in addition to simplifying the entry process, we are promoting the effective usage of parking space and decreasing the number of cars entering RIKEN due to the shortage of parking space. Please read the following items (1 to 3) to understand the entry process and parking rules. We also encourage visitors to use public transport or car pools as much as possible.

1. Entry into the premises for contract work, delivery, participating in competitive biddings or explanatory meetings for biddings

  • Entry and parking permits will be issued upon the completion of the application form at the guard station.
  • In principle, you must park your car in the designated area (see Wako Campus Parking Map) on campus and must not park on the streets.
    Note: An exception would be visitors to park their vehicles for a short time anywhere on campus to deliver parcels or goods. (However, parking is not allowed in front of the main entrances of buildings. Parking in any one location is limited to a maximum of 30 minutes.)
  • Vehicles for construction and other contract work are only allowed to be parked at the West Gate parking, South Gate Parking, and East Area Parking (Wako Campus Parking Map) except when they are used for the work. Use of other parking spaces is not allowed.

2. Entry for interviews with RIKEN personnel or by request of RIKEN

  • When you are coming by car, please arrange with the section/laboratory you are visiting beforehand and pre-register as much as possible.
  • It is possible to enter, and park at RIKEN without pre-registering by filling out the one-day entry permit at the guard station on the day of the visit. However, as it takes time for visitors to fill out the form, we recommend that you pre-register beforehand.

3. Entry for sales promotion

  • To enter RIKEN for purposes other than delivery of goods, please use the public parking lot outside of RIKEN.
    Note: Exceptions are acceptable when requested by RIKEN employees.

*Note: The restriction above does not apply for entry and parking of vehicles on weekends and holidays. Please apply for entry permit at the guard station and receive a one-day parking permit.

Thank you for your cooperation.
