How to find cheap car parking?

Japanese car parking is always quite expensive, especially in the middle of Tokyo. You want to know how to park cheaply and legally, right? I’ll show you how by using a great app by Docomo called Peasy.

so says

I drive mostly every day so parking fees are a massive pain. One day, I asked one of my university friends, “You go to uni in the middle of Tokyo by car everyday, right? Parking is expensive, isn’t it? How do you manage?” He said, “Yeah, it’s pain but I usually use an app on my phone so I don’t pay as much.” 

He was using an app called Peasy. It’s kind of like Airbnb for your car. People who have a free space or land that they don’t use can make it available on the app so users can search for it and make a booking to use it.

The price is much cheaper than the normal car parking because sometimes the road is narrow or it’s hard to access, or it is just on dirt ground etc. But as well as being cheap I like the idea of using otherwise wasted space in Tokyo. I downloaded and tried the service and was impressed by how convenient, easy to use, and cheap it is. Now, I’m a regular user! It depends on the place but I usually pay 60% less than the regular parking fee. Keep in mind that you have to book on the app 30 minutes before the actual parking time.
