Ibaraki Prefectural Day

Author: Author Unknown, Issue: November 1995, Topic: Events

In addition to the regular national holidays, prefectures have begun having their own special holiday. For a number of years, now, Ibaraki schools and local government offices have taken the day off. For the private sector, however, it is generally business as usual.

One popular event held on this day is a special at Tokyo Disneyland for residents of Ibaraki. If you buy your tickets locally (at train stations, travel agents and even Hot Spar markets), the 4800yen regular passbook ticket is reduced to 3700yen (2800yen for children). If you can afford the time off, it's a great time to go. Be forewarned, however, that it tends to be very crowded, and so you can't expect to get on many rides. The "Fantillusion" show and other features of the park, however, are worth it even if you don't get into many rides.

The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
