    Background: May Day in Tokyo May 1 attracted an estimated 500,000 people to the City's Meiji Park - a record May Day rally attendance.

    Dancing, singing and placard carrying were the highlights of the celebrations. Incidents were few - most come from students with a shout against the Government over the renewed US-Japan security pact.

    Kisewhere in Japan with an estimated 8M people participating in May Day rallies a general good honour prevailed despite fears of clashes between students and workers following recent students' attempts to participate in trade union activities.
