Getting around Tokyo

The easiest way to get around Tokyo is via the extensive rail and subway network. Tokyo's rail networks are mostly privately owned and its not uncommon to find two or more stations next to each other that may or may not both take you where you want to go. With over 1000 stations in the metropolitan area the service is frequent fast and always on time. The majority of tourists who stay around the Central Tokyo or Ginza area will find that Tokyo's Metro Subway one of the most convenient lines to get around on. Other lines popular with tourist include the Yurikamome Line that heads out to the Odaiba entertainment island and the JR Keiyo Line that can get you to Tokyo Disneyland.

Most stations do feature a small amount of English signs around the place but it still can be very daunting to the first time visitor, one thing to note is that there will be normally at least one ticket machine that has an English button. If you are not sure of the fair to your desired stop you can buy the cheapest fare and then use the fare adjustment machine when you get off at your desired stop. you put your ticket into the fair adjustment machine and it tells you what you need to pay extra before it will return your ticket so you can exit the station.

Other popular forms of transport around Tokyo include buses and taxi's. Its most likely the bus you board will have no English anywhere and the bus driver will probably wont know English either, so you should be prepared if you intend to use the bus or just find a subway that will go close to where you need.

Taxi's can be reasonably priced for short trips  but you wouldn't want to go to the airport in a taxi as it could end up quite expensive. A good tip when using a taxi is to have the place name and address written down on some paper as the driver may not know English and it can be difficult navigating Japan's weird street number conventions.
