I wish to update this information, as I am now more than a little confused.
Culture Day is listed as Sunday Nov3, and "observed" on Monday Nov 4
Could I please be advised as to what will be closed on Sunday Nov3, Monday Nov4 and Tuesday Nov5 (day after Public Holiday), please? Thank you!
I am particularly concerned re ATM's at banks & post offices, tourist attractions, and restaurants
We will be travelling from family in Sendai to Tokyo on the afternoon of Sunday Nov 3. That will be with reserved seats with a JR Pass and I will reserve them well ahead of time.
We will be in Tokyo (Shinjuku) from the evening of Sunday Nov 3 until departing in the evening of Thursday Nov 7.
We are particularly keen to go to the the department stores around Shinjuku, as well as
1.Bunkyo Civic Center &Koishikawa Korakuen (both of which look to be open judging by the hours on this site)and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building: I gather one of the decks at least will be open all days we are there?
2. Imperial Palace east gardens: will be OPEN on Mon3, and CLOSED on Tuesday 4?
3.Kamakura: all major sites seem to be open all days: BUT what about restaurants on those 3 days?
4.MAYBE also Matsumoto for the Ukiyo-e Museum, which states "Mondays (or following day if Monday is a national holiday)": does that mean it is open Sunday 3rd, Monday 4th and closed Tuesday 5th?
Sorry to be so confused!
