Getting Around Tokyo

There are a number of ways you can get yourself around Tokyo to see all the major sites this beautiful and historic city has to offer. Subway and trains are the best way to see Tokyo, and you can get a prepaid Suica or Pasmo card that is the best way to pay for transport. Buses can be useful but not ideal. Getting to know which bus goes where and where to get off can be really tricky. 

Most of Tokyo's major urban hubs are located on the "Loop Line", which makes it easy to just ride the subway to get to those places. It is recommended to get Suica/Pasmo card when you arrive at Narita or Haneda. After using the initial credit, you can top them up using machines at the train stations. And don't forget to return them as you leave, so you can get back your 500 Yen deposit.

Getting a taxi in Tokyo can be a good way to go to places that are not near a train or subway station. They are a good option if you have many luggages or have more people to split the fare, because they can be very expensive.
