The metro takes you exactly where you want to go with little or no hassle once you get the swing of it. Do not buy individual tickets get a Pasmo Card - it makes it so much easier. At times there are no crowds at all.

This Metro is designed with the rights requirements. It flows flawlessly with the JR lines (including the bullet train N700) and subway. They can teach us Americans a whole lot in regards to transportation. I hope the Japanese were invited to the table when California talks about a high speed trains. Effortless to maneuver around Japan. Love that N700... See... More

The metro is really easy to use, and the staff who man it are more than willing to help you with tickets. If you're moving around quite a lot, get a day pass. It's quite affordable. We did get on the metro at peak times and, whilst it was very busy, it wasn't as bad as I'd feared. Although, coming... More

I love the subway system in Tokyo and prefer it to the train and bus. Here are the reasons why I love it and find it easy to use: they have a really easy to use and clear app to use on smartphones, the lines are all colour coded so you look for the colour circle rather than a Japanese... More

We paid 170 yen (about £1.50) each for a single ticket from Shibuya to Shinjinku. Our first trip and the station guard was extremely helpful! Seek them out if you are unsure which ticket to get. Trains are clean (far far cleaner than the London Underground and New York subway). Enjoy!

Tokyo metro, made up of different lines, is what keeps the huge city ticking unfailingly. Some of the stations are under renovation so first timers might have a different opinion but this metro is superbly maintained and run. What you should know is the name of the line which you have to take. And once you reach your destination station... More

We used it everyday to get to places that we need to do. People there were so nice as I asked directions always everyday. Workers there love to help and did not show any frustrations as all. Trains were always on time. I hate how come connecting lines are far far away. Sometimes we would have to walk a long... More

Very easy to use. There are generally people at the ticket gate who can walk you through getting your tickets, showing you how and where to go. Signs are in Japanese and English. Exceptionally easy to use. If you look lost chances are someone will stop to help you. Cars clean, well kept up. If you intend to use the... More

Very efficient, reliable and affordable system with extensive network covering CBD. Use it together with bus make the accessibility to any part of CBD very easy to visitor. However, try to avoid AM and PM peak if travel with young children.

It is the most efficient way to go to places in Tokyo. Average cost is about $3 around attractions within Tokyo. If you miss one, the next one comes in less than 5 minutes, usually less. Only bad things is too crowded. If you use the Suica or Pasmo card, that is very convenient.
