Subway Use Tokyo Reviews
Easy use of Tokyo's subway system May 18, 2007
The subway system of Tokyo looks like one giant maze with all the lines crossing each other and all the colours making it looking (very) difficult to see where you're going.
To make sure you don't spent a lot of money on buying the wrong tickets or having to pay extra if you missed a station and got out the next station, there are 2 different day passes.
It's important to know first, that there are 2 subway systems in Tokyo: Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway. Most lines are operated by Tokyo Metro, so an 1-day pass for the Tokyo Metro will do. The price for an adult is 710 Yen (around 8 US dollars or 5,50 euros).
However, some stations can only be reached by taking the Toei Subway, so that means having to pay extra. But there's also an 1-day pass for subway systems. The price for an dault is 1000 Yen (around 11 US dollars or 7,50 euros).
These passes are valid for whole day and you have unlimited access on the lines. It's ideal if you have to use the subway alot for 1 day.
Tickets can be bought at the vending machines at any subway stations.
