  Subway in Tokyo
by kiwigal_1

It is very easy and convenient to get around Tokyo using the fantastic subway and train systems that go all over the city. The train stations are all well signposted in English and in Japanese. Get hold of a good train/subway map in English and Japanese and off you go! Train travel is very cheap in Tokyo compared with other parts of Japan. The average trip costs less than 200 yen. The map to your left is of the major train lines in Tokyo. Click to enlarge.
