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

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

Tokyo Public Facilities offering free admissions on Tomin-no-hi : October 1st.

* If the Tokyo Citizens' Day falls on Saturday or Sunday, popular spots will be crowded.
