We move for one week in the Metro system. It is very easy to understand, it has good graphics and information about platforms, lines and exit. Too crowded in weekday, however it works great

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art

Which travel card to purchase (4 Replies)
We are staying at the Century Souther Tower for three days before we leave for a cruise out of Yokohoma. I am still not sure whether to take to N'EX or the limo bus that stops at the hotels. It does stop at our hotel. Can I buy just the Suica Smart card and still get all around Tokyo metro area if we deside to use the limo bus? We want to save money on transportation so we can spend it on trinkets.... Thanking you in advance for your help

You can purchase Suica by itself. It's a stored value card. No savings vs cash fares - but much more convenient.

If you don't know the right fares, you can ask people around, including railway staffs who are there for the job. You may also buy the minimum fare ticket and make fare...More
