The Embassy’s website for passport renewal recommends that visitors to the Consular Section use public transport. However, for many people going by car may be more convenient and cheaper especially if travelling in a group.
If you decide to go by car, you need to pay for a parking space because the Embassy does not provide one and Roppongi 5-chōme, where the Embassy is located is a strictly no-parking area. Illegally parked cars are quickly towed away.
Here are the nearest parking spaces around the Embassy:
Meitetsu Roppongi 5-chōme
The most convenient parking, right next to the Embassy. And because it’s the nearest parking, it tends to fill up easily, especially if you come after 10:00.
|Address||5-15-15 Roppongi, Minato City, Tokyo 106-0032|
|Basic cost||07:00-18:00 JPY400/10min|
|Maximum cost||07:00-18:00 JPY3,500 to JPY3,900 depending on the parking number|
Repark Roppongi 5-Chome #4
This is about 240 meters, or about 3 minutes walk from the Embassy, and a lot cheaper. Parking spaces are limited, so it also tends to fill up.
|Address||5-12-11 Roppongi, Minato City, Tokyo 106-0032|
