Various types of public transport are available in Tokyo, including trains, buses, taxies, airplanes and ships. Buying a ticket may involve a different process for each transportation service.
Train networks in Tokyo are composed of JR lines, private lines and subway lines. At each train station, electronic information boards tell you the arrival time and destination of the next available train. Some information is also displayed in English.
Train operation and timetableThe JR Yamanote Line and many other private lines that run through central Tokyo offer frequent services. It usually requires a wait of between 3 to 10 minutes to catch the next train, although the waiting time may be slightly longer in early morning and late at night. You may pick up a free timetable of local services at each station. Nationwide timetables are available at bookstores. You can also use an online transportation search to check routes, fees and travel time to your destination.
Tokyo Metro / Toei subway linesSubway networks are well established in Tokyo and are very convenient. Subway stations are connected to ground level via numerous exits. Some stations are directly linked to major department stores and buildings via underground passageways.
