We got a day pass, easy to use. Clean and safe, respect that people read and work on the subway. No loud phones or people talking or playing loud games. We traveled everywhere download the app so we could easily go from our hotel or anyplace we needed to go. Even though rush hour was fast and moving. It wasn’t that bad.

It took us a little bit to figure it out but once we did, we covered all corners of Tokyo with it. It was clean, fast, reliable and relatively inexpensive. I highly recommend it!!!

I love Tokyo metro despite my first experience of using it during my recent trip to Tokyo in October 2018. It was easy to navigate, fast and cost effective when you buy the day passes. The sub-ways provided by different service providers connecting all the places of interest of Tokyo metropolitan. I did not make any mistake as I used google map app to support when commuting within places via the metros.
As a tourist, I tried to avoid the rush hours( 7-9am & 5-7pm) when using the metros as priority should be given to the locals to commute to their work places in the morning and back home in the evening.

The Tokyo Metro is on time and incredibly clean and the stops are announced in English. With a Metro map you're able to get to any area of Tokyo with no problem.

The metro is easy to navigate and well signposted. Get a rechargeable Suica card to pay your fare as it makes getting around v easy. Stations are often huge so worth taking your time to work out which exit you want.

Metro is clean, safe and quiet in terms of noise. It is busy though and you will be packed in like sardines at rush hour.

THe JR rail pass was well worth the money . It gets you access to most of the country . We bought a 14 day pass ‘green car’ which can be used on metro and bullet trains. Getting through train stations is quick and seamless just always remember to enter on right going in and left going out all you have to do is show pass to rail attendant. You must purchase this pass before you leave your home country and pick pass up at a JR office once you are there but it is an easy process. The green cars on the bullet trains may need to be reserved which can be done at all major JR stations but there is usually plenty of room as they run every 1/2 an hour all over the country. The Hiroshima line is very busy and I would recommend reserving your seat for this destination a couple of days in advance. Once you have the pass you do not have to pay for any further transport on any JR lines. Of course if you travel on the private subways you will need to purchase a ticket but we found JR got us to every where we needed and wanted to go. The pass may also be used on the Narita express to and from the airport.

Got the 72 hr pass with skyliner return. Very easy to get about, reliable but gets like sardines in a tin at rush hour.
One point though: a lot of stairs in places, so bear that in mind when arriving from airport with big luggage.

We travelled using Tokyo metro trains, sometimes in combination with JR trains all over Tokyo. The subway system is very easy to use and trains are clean, punctual and efficient. You can buy paper tickets, prepaid cards or unlimited use day passes. We opted for an ICOCA stored value card plus a JR pass which took us all over not only Tokyo, but also most parts of Japan.

It may seem like the most confusing and complex system and the larger stations can be daunting to navigate, but it is all clearly signed and the line colours are easy to follow. The most efficient and cleanest trains and at times the most packed you’ll ever experience.

We used the Metro twice during our three day trip to Tokyo, from the south of the city to Ikebukuro. We used two different lines but the experience on both was superb. We found local Japanese young people who were keen to help in showing us how to purchase tickets from the machines, and showed us which platforms we needed to board from. The trains are safe and efficient and the information system on the train tells you which stations you are approaching so that you can be ready to get off
