Visit Japan’s Popular Attractions via the Tokyo Subway

While there’s various transportation options in Tokyo that’ll let you hop from one attraction to another, the train remains one of the cheapest and most convenient modes of commute. The Tokyo underground consists of two mass rapid transit systems: Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway. Combined, they encompass 13 lines and more than 250 stations, as you may notice in this map. For tourists, this means you’ll get to utilize a broad and extensive subway network that’ll let you access popular points of interests in Tokyo. For this reason alone, I’d say getting the unlimited metro pass is worth it.

To help you plan your daily itinerary and decide if you want to buy the Tokyo Subway Pass online, here are some attractions to note:

FAQ: Using the Tokyo Subway Pass

1. Should I get a Tokyo Subway Ticket or Suica IC Card?

Suica is a prepaid transportation card in Japan that may be used to ride the trains, buses, and JR East Trains. It also works as a method of payment for convenience stores, select restaurants, and coin lockers.

Getting the unlimited subway ticket is recommended if you plan to rely on Tokyo’s underground system heavily and want to save money. However, if you want flexibility in terms of the ride you’ll take, you can get Suica — or even both.

You can find more information and book a Suica IC card on WAUG here.

2. Is there a Tokyo subway map or app that I can download?

Yes! You may download and use the handy Tokyo Subway Navigation app. Here’s the link to Google Play and the link to the App Store.

If you want to have an offline Tokyo subway map stored on your phone or laptop, click here.

3. Tokyo Subway operating hours?

The first train usually leaves at 5am while the last train leaves at 12am, give or take. If you want to be sure, you can check Tokyo Metro’s timetable here.

Oh, and do note that during rush hour or up until 9:30am, the Tokyo Metro runs ‘women-only’ cars.

4. How do I use the Tokyo Subway Ticket?
