Tokyo Japan Tokyo Metro (Subway)

The Tokyo Subway consists of two separate networks, named Tokyo Metro and Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation (TMBT).

TMBT lines are usually described as Toei, what means “operated (ei) by the Metropolitan Government (to)”.

So these networks are separate and if don’t have a rail pass, allowing to change from one network to another one, than you’ll have to buy one more ticket in order to pass on to another subway network.

Toei disposes of main lines, marked by distinctive colors and letters (in order to simplify the searching procedure when using a map):

Line 1 (A) - light coral color

Line 6 (I) – navy

Line 10 (S) – lime green

Line 12 (E) – deep pink color

There are through lines as well.

Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation runs today a public bus network, a large fiber optic cable network in the city, as well as several electric power generators.

The Tokyo Metro is one of the most complex metropolitan systems all over the worldIt is known to be immensely well maintained and to be very clean and neat all the time. And it is a real undertaking as Tokyo Metro is really huge in size. It disposes of 9 main lines, marked in different colours and letters:

Line 3 (G) – orange

Line 4 (M) – red

Line 2 (H) – grey

Line 5 (T) – blue

Line 9 (C) – green

Line 8 (Y) – yellow

Line 11 (Z) – purple

Line 7 (N) – emerald green

Line 13 (Y) – brown

The foreigners should not been afraid, though, of such a huge metropolitan system, as the maps are available almost everywhere and, besides, train stops are announced both in English and Japanese. And there is connection line information in the enouncement as well. You may choose English language while using ticketing machines, and train stations are now signposted in English and in Japanese.
