  • Tokyo Metro Pass: 24, 48 and 72-Hour Options

    8. Tokyo Metro Pass: 24, 48 and 72-Hour Options

    Although public transportation in Tokyo is very convenient, it can also be quite pricey as individual trips typically cost from 100-500 yen. It may not seem like much when you tap your Suica card each time you pass through the ticket gate, but if you do the math at the end of the day, you'll find that it can add up to be quite a lot! There is a much cheaper alternative available: This 24, 48 or 72-hour Metro pass offers unlimited use during consecutive days within your chosen timeframe. Your pass provides unlimited access to all the Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway lines within the Tokyo Metropolitan area, taking you anywhere in the city you may want to go.

    Give yourself at least a day or so to get used to the Japanese metro system, especially if you don't know the language. Navigating your way around the stations, especially the major hubs, can be daunting, to say the least. But once you have grasped the basics of what to look for (like the color of the line, the code number, the before and after station names, etc., to know which way you're headed), then you become more confident and it all becomes a breeze.

First, meet your guide in bohemian Shimokitazawa, an area that’s off the Tokyo tourist trail where local artists and musicians move between cool thrift shops and vintage record stores lining tightly packed streets too narrow for cars. Peer into the tiny shops on your way to Tomigaya, a quiet oasis filled with cafes and artisanal coffee shops not far from frenetic, flashy Shibuya, then stroll through Nabeshima Shoto...

    It was great—I just wish I had booked a longer tour! Our guide, Royce, was really informative and took the time to explain lots that I might not have even noticed.

My private tour trough Tokio was just awesome. Together with my guide Yoshi we explored Tsujiki Fish Market, Meiji Shrine and also some local shops. She gave me so many insights about Japan, the culture and daily life that it felt like exploring the city with a friend. Great day. Great memories. Thanks for this experience!!!

Pocket wifi was waiting for us when we arrived at hotel. Extremely easy to get set up, and has been an absolute blessing having unlimited internet access on the move. Highly recommended!!

Definitely worth it and also absolutely necessary because some don't speak English or often look through maps themselves for where and how they're going

Got it at my hotel, it comes with a short instruction card and it's very easy to understand and set up. Works great!

It got sent to the hotel, is easy to use and the battery last long enought.
