How a transport system should be run - efficient, reasonably priced, on time, space for everyone, even when busy.

When arriving in Tokyo by train, go to the west side of the station to the KITTE building. On basement floor is Tokyo City, which sells the 24/48/72 hours subway tickets. It is a very good deal.

However the subway can be confusing. I downloaded an ap called tokyosubway and it works offline. You geolocate where you are and search for where you want to go and it maps out the quickest way. Subway stops are numbered according to the line, e.g....More

It is so easy to get around Tokyo on the Metro. They color code the lines and NUMBER the stops. This simple thing needs to catch on. There are signs which are numbered like this 3-4-5 with an arrow indicating which way the train is...More

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.

The metro travels at normal subway speed, it is the Shinkansen or bullet trains between cities that are really fast.

The only difference between PASMO and SUICA is who sells them. SUICA is from JR East, and PASMO is from Tokyo-area non-JR rail operators, including Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway. Wherever you can use SUICA, you can use PASMO... More
