We made regular use of the metro as our hotel was out of the centre. It's cheap, clean and frequent. Tickets for single journeys are usually around 200 yen (£1.30). There are a huge number of stops though so it actually makes travel quite slow...More

In my books, the Tokyo Metro is one of the best subway system in the world because of its cleanliness, efficiency and punctuality. Not to mention the train is amazingly quiet, so much so that if you close your eyes, you would have thought that...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the

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