We have prepared the following advice to help you plan your travel. The hints and tips below should be read in conjunction with the information on each travel option that follows. Please download our Official Travel Guide for Aichi/Toyota (City of Toyota Stadium) here. Make sure to print it off and bring with you as access to WiFi is not guaranteed in every stadium.
- Plan and book ahead: Arrange your travel and accommodation as soon as possible. If you are an international visitor and intend travelling by train, we strongly recommend you purchase a Japan Rail Pass before you arrive.
- Travel the right way: Roads are expected to be busy on match days so please use public transport, park and ride, walk or cycle where possible. Remember there is no parking at the venue except for wheelchair ticket holders that have reserved a parking space. There are also no drop-off or pick-up facilities near the venue except for taxis. If you intended driving, please use park and ride and note it is reservation only. Spaces are limited so book your place well in advance to avoid disappointment.
- Travelling from within the local area: If you intend on travelling by car, park and ride could be a good option as train services are expected to be busy, particularly after the match. It is reservation only and spaces are limited so book your place well in advance to avoid disappointment.
- Travelling from further away: If you are travelling longer distances by train to Toyota, consider heading to Nagoya Station and connect to services which stop at Toyota City and Shin-Toyota stations, close to the stadium. These two stations are expected to be particularly busy after the match. If you are an international visitor or travelling from elsewhere in Japan and intend travelling by train, consider staying locally if you can and travel back the following day. You could also consider flying into Chubu International Airport and continue your journey to the stadium via public transport.
- Arrive early: Arrive into Toyota with enough time to soak up the atmosphere. Don’t leave it too late to get to the stadium. Gates open two and a half hours before kick-off. We recommend you arrive 90 minutes early, allowing at least 60 minutes to clear security and access your seat. There will be plenty to see and do inside so leave enough time to enjoy it, before the match starts.
- Stay longer and enjoy the local area: Rather than travel away from the host city after the match, spend time some time at the stadium (gates close 90 minutes after the final whistle) or enjoying the local area highlights before heading to your next destination. Staying on will also help you avoid the anticipated crowds at transport hubs.
- Pre-paid travel cards are best: Paying for public transport is easier using a prepaid travel card or IC Card. These cards are available for different regions and can be pre-loaded with credit. Simply tap the card at the ticket gate at the start and end of your journey and the correct fare is deducted.
- Pick-up travel tickets in advance: Consider picking up your travel card or other travel tickets before match-day to avoid queues at ticket machines on the day.
- Head to a Fanzone: If you’re in the area early on the day of the match why not visit the Fanzone at Toyota Sky Hall? Please check our Fanzone page for additional information.
- Check before you travel: For those travelling out of the area after the match, please be sure to check the time of your chosen transport and don’t leave it until the last service of the day.
- Safety and security: When planning your trip, remember there are restrictions on what you can take into the venue. There are no bag-drop or luggage storage facilities at venues so travel light. Please refer to the match venue page for more information on prohibited items.
- New to Japan? If you are not familiar with the area, please refer to the additional tips for international visitors.
