Oct 9 public holiday - what's open/closed?

Hi All

sorry - just saw someone posted a similar question - please ignore

just wondering with the public holiday on October 9 if you could tell me what is open/closed?

Eg. would general shops still be open? Would museums and other tourist activities be closed?

Thanks very much

Basically, everything is open. Museums that are usually closed on Mondays will be open, but will be closed on Tuesday instead. Inner market at Tsukiji Fish Market will be closed.

I was just wondering this same thing; I looked online but it wasn't totally clear to me -- is Tsukiji fish market expected to be closed on Mon 10/9 or Tues 10/10?

It's common in Japan that a place that would normally be closed on the day of a public holiday will be open, and then closed the day after. So if they normally close on Mondays and the holiday is a Monday, they'll open on Monday and close on the Tuesday instead.

So is it wise to go to Disneysea on Monday being a public holiday?

I'd rather go on Tuesday if I had the choice. Most people here have a 3-day weekend right now.

Oh, DON'T go to Disneyland or DisneySea on a public holiday! Unless you want to see SEAS of people and long lines. Disney is open 356/366 days of the year. Pick a non-holiday day.

Sunday's prediction is 60,000. Monday is 48,000. Go Monday.

Dress in layers, choose comfortable shoes, bring patience and always wear a smile! :-)
