Because parking spaces around the area will be limited during the festival, we highly recommend you take the city’s convenient public transit system. The Municipal Transportation Agency (Muni) has bus stops one block away from the center of Japantown.

If you are coming into San Francisco via Muni train or BART, the easiest and most direct route is to get off at Montgomery Street Station, walk upstairs to Market Street and catch the 38 Geary to the Fillmore and Geary bus stop.

The festival has also partnered with Parking Panda ( for parking in the vicinity of Japantown.  This is a third party service which the Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival does not accept responsibility.  Please check maps for locations.

Please research other transportation services prior to attending the event.
