Tokyo health and sports day 07

We will be in Tokyo, flying out that night on the second Monday in October, 2007. I have read that this is a national holiday, called Health and Sports Day.

Can anyone tell me how this will affect tourist sites being open and public transport etc?

Is there anything special on this day that we could take advantge of?

Yokohama, Japan

Yes, 8th of October is exactly Sports Day. I am not sure if everybody is healthy on that day. Some tourist sites will be crowed with full of people if it is a fine day. However ,the museum and some government facilities may be closed for employee to go out from Tokyo, but it will be limited. All the public transportaion should work all day by mid-night, however the frequency of the trains and buses is less on Sundays and holidays: Guess 30% less. So there will be no problem for tourists going out from Japan.
