18th / 21st October 2021


Friday 22nd - Sunday 31st October is the Clean Campaign period for bicycles that are illegally parked in front of stations.


In order to make the city’s streets attractive and to make the city comfortable to live in, please abide by the manners for bicycle use and stop parking bicycles illegally.


When bicycles are left unattended, they block the pavement and obstruct the passage of pedestrians, especially the elderly, young children and people with disabilities.

They also hinder evacuation and rescue operations in the event of a disaster.

Make sure you park your bicycle in a designated place such as a bicycle parking lot.


Bicycles left on public roads around stations will be removed once a certain period of time has passed following a warning.

A removal fee will be charged when retrieving such bicycles.


The subsection in charge at Minato City’s Regional City Offices is the City Development Subsection of the City Development Section.
