The Japan Rail (JR) network of trains covers the whole of the country and JR East is responsible for the network in the east of Japan including Tokyo.
Shinkansen (Bullet Train)
Shinkansen speeding in and out of Tokyo Station is synonymous with fast-paced and modern Tokyo.
The Tokyo Metro and The Toei Transportation —Japan's underground networks of trains—is as comprehensive as its over ground cousin.
When walking Tokyo's streets, you will never be far from a taxi. Thousands of green, yellow and black cabs are available to be flagged down as and when you need them.
Buses can be a useful transportation alternative to trains if you are staying outside of the immediate city center.
With Tokyo's peerless public transportation system, it is unlikely you will need to rent a car if you are staying central throughout your stay.
