How to Get Around in Tokyo

How to Get Around in Tokyo
Tokyo is an enormous city with excellent public transit and small, walkable neighborhoods—you don’t need a car to get around. In fact, parking is a problem at many center-city destinations, so it’s best to avoid driving. Here are your options.

Train, Subway, and Bus
Tokyo’s above- and underground rail systems are extensive, efficient, clean, and quite comfortable (as long as you avoid rush hours). Most points of interest in the city are within easy walking distance of at least one station. Be aware that different companies run different lines, and not all tickets or transport passes are interchangeable. Buses are less popular with travelers, but they’re an option for reaching attractions that are farther afield. 

Walking Tours
Although Tokyo is big, its neighborhoods are compact and simple to navigate. Take a train to a neighborhood, then get around on foot. Walking tours are a fun way to get to know particular neighborhoods—you can even choose a theme, such as Shinjuku nightlife, architecture, or photography.  

Small-Vehicle Tours
For a different way to get a close-up look at a Tokyo neighborhood, get around by bicycle, traditional rickshaw, or boat. You can even join a go-kart tour.
