A few museums in Tokyo offer free admission to seniors over 65 or 70 (be sure to have your passport handy), including the Tokyo National Museum; others in Tokyo and elsewhere may offer discounts. However, discounts may not be posted, so be sure to ask. In addition, visitors to Japan should be aware that there are many stairs to navigate in metropolitan areas, particularly in subway and train stations and on pedestrian overpasses. Remember that it is very hot and humid in summer.
