2. 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.

Our guide and the Chef were both friendly and knew about the fish market and the cooking. For my 15 year old son it was an excellent experience. For someone who already has basic sushi making knowledge it is not the right lesson. Still enjoyed it a lot! People are smiley, comprehensive and helpful with extra information on where to get xyz. Thank you Nuremi and Mai!

Shaun was an amazing tour guide! He has so much knowledge of the area and very easy to talk to. I highly recommend this tour!

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