If you drive, first go to the Tenri City Hall which is on the route 169 (Nara to Tenri to Sakurai). Turn left (if you are from Nara) and go along the gingo avenue for about a kilo, then you'll get to the Tenrikyo Headquater. Tenri University is across the street.

Or if you get off at Tenri Higashi Intersection of Meihan highway, and drive along for about 2 miles, then you'll arrive at Isonokami Shrine. You can see Tenri University from there. (You'll see the two tall chimneys.)

Just turn right at the first traffic signal in front of the Shrine.

From there you'll find the event posters.

Tenri University has two campuses, the PE Department right behind Tenri station and Somanouchi campus in front of the Tenrikyo Headquarters (kyokai-honbu). The venue is Somanouchi campus, which is near Isonokami Shrine.

If you come by train, please walk up the main arcade up to the Headquaters. It takes about 25 minutes. 5-10 minutes by taxi.
