Visitors in kimono can use attached free tickets for free transportation on city buses and city subways, and for free admission to temples, shrines, and museums. The guidebook is of A-4 size with 17 pages. Ninety thousand copies are being distributed at the city hall and other places. It is also available on the website of Traditional Industry Day.(translated by Galileo, Inc.)
