Free admissions on Tokyo Citizens' Day (Tomin-no-hi)

The first of October or Tomin-no-hi, is the Tokyo Citizen’s Day on which most of the schools in Tokyo are closed for the holiday. Students in Tokyo look forward to the day as they plan to visit popular spots that are usually crowded on weekends. For business people, it is just an ordinary working day unless it falls on Saturday or Sunday, but it is great for tourists that some of public facilities operated by Tokyo government offer free admission.
