Tokyo metro, subway system made for total idiots, excuse my language! If you understand English, it's for you if you're a foreigner! Have your subway map, locate where you live and where you want to go. And you're at home from any place once get underground... Until 12 am or so, though :( . Easy connections, just make sure you...

We've traveled extensively in Europe and have also ridden many subways in the US. The subway system jn Japan is nothing short of amazing, in comparison. First and foremost, the trains are immaculate. The floors are clean and there's no graffiti to be found. That could be due in large part to those that use the system. The passengers are... More

This metro system is actually very easy to navigate. Everything is well laid out and labeled to make it easy even if you don't speak the language. Very clean and organized.

Our first experience with the Tokyo Metro was looking helplessly at the map at Tokyo Station and trying to work out how to get to where we needed to be as thousands of people moved past us. After the first day we found it was really easy if you disregard the Japanese names, follow the color codes and number systems... More

The Tokyo Metro is a great way to get around the city. You can easily get anywhere in Tokyo as fast - or faster- than if you were to take a Taxi. If you read this, I recommend one thing. This will save you a lot of time and headache and possibly a lot of money. Get a PASMO card!!!!... More

The subway system is incredibly clean and efficient. Nothing but praise for the Tokyo Metro. What I would have done without my local tour guide? I would not recommend anyone to go at it alone to any destination first or second time by themselves. To many subtleties, exist. Some stations have five subways in layers. The maps are not geographically... More

The Japanese subway train system is the most efficient transportation system I've ever come across. It's easy to navigate your way in Tokyo, outside the city and even cross cites using JR or Shinkansen, never a daunting task even for non-Japanese speaking tourists. You'll be able to get hold of the train timetable at the stations or online. The beauty... More

You can go any place in Tokyo on the Metro. Buy a 1-2 day pass Great Value for the $$. The metro & JR station can be use to explore Tokyo on your own time & place
