I found out yesterday that the bicycle parking spots at Tsukuba Center are all full for March, because lots of people have bought one month contracts. So we can't park our bicycles for one day in the automatic bike lots (the coin slot in machine has been taped over, so can't pay).
The only available bike lot is Section 1 (Central Bike Lot) under the bridge. Here it costs 100yen per day and 620yen per month for students. Actually pay the money to the man in office. Ask to put bike outside if return to Tsukuba after 10pm.
Because of the high demand for bicycle parking spots, they are making a new automatic bike lot behind the Police Box on the corner of TX exit. This will be available from April. If you want to buy a monthly contract for automatic bike lot, buy the card at Section 1 Central Bike Lot Office from 1 April. "First In Best Dressed!"
If you accidentally park your bicycle in the automatic locker (metal frame), and you cannot pay because the coin slot is taped over, thus cannot get bike out (like I did yesterday!!), go and explain this to the man in the office at Section 1 Central Bike Lot and he will use a card to unlock your bicycle for you.
Section 1 Central Parking Lot - pay at office (large manual parking lot under bridge) Other bike lots - automatic machine (buy monthly contract card at Section 1 Central Parking Lot office beforehand). When you put bicycle in metal frame, automatically locks your wheel in after a few seconds. When you want to remove bike, insert your card into slot in metal frame, and lock opens to release your bike.
