The holiday-season shelter run by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government closed Monday, and some 800 lodgers were taken to different accommodations to continue their hunt for homes and jobs.

Of the 833 idled workers who stayed at the National Olympics Memorial Youth Center in Shibuya Ward, about 800 have not secured a job or place to live, according to the metropolitan government, which opened the temporary shelter Dec. 28 using central government money.

The lodgers were bused to capsule hotels and other facilities Monday afternoon after being briefed in the morning.
