Budget Planner – 2021 Japanese Grand Prix

Filed in 2021 Japanese Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 7 Comments

Plan the cost of your trip to Suzuka for the 2021 Japanese Grand Prix, including the cost of race tickets, accommodation and spending money.

Please Note: The 2020 Japanese Grand Prix (scheduled for October 9-11) was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This post will be updated with current prices when dates are announced for the 2021 Japanese Grand Prix and ticket sales begin.

Japan is an expensive tourist destination, especially when it comes to accommodation and getting around. The US dollar remained steady against the Yen over the past 12 months, but fell 10% in the two years previous. With limited accommodation near the Suzuka circuit, it’s easier to stay in nearby Nagoya and travel to the circuit by train each day. Luckily, Japanese Grand Prix tickets are not the most expensive on the current calendar, and several cheaper options exist.

    Hi Andrew, do you know when the general admission tickets will be on sale for the Japan grandprix? Also what general admission tickets are available, 3 day only or 1 day only tickets and how much they roughly cost.

    Cheers, Josh

    • Editor says:

      General Admission tickets (G,L,M,N,O) should go on sale on July 8. Last year, these were $78 for 3 days. I don’t think single-day tickets are available. More info in our Tickets Guide.

    Dear author and readers,
    Japan’s consumption tax will rise on this October 1 (8% -> 10%), then fares and prices can be slightly higher than last year.
