Having a prepaid subway card made city travels extremely convenient and efficient. A 1-day pass is also another good option. There are other options to suit travelers' needs. Always an enjoyable experience whenever we traveled to Japan.

Get the reloadable Manaca IC Card rather than waiting in line to buy individual tickets. It also works on many (but not all) of the other railroads/subways in Japan. The cost is Y500 (about USD4 at the moment) and makes up for the cost in...More
