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

    4. 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.

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.

If you do not take JR arrange the transfer to the airport.
