Guide to the Tokyo Subway 1-3 Day Pass (2019 Update)

A how-to guide for the Tokyo subway pass that saves you money and time. There is a 24, 48, and 72-hour pass, which covers the Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway lines that cover over 200 stations throughout the city. This is effectively a Tokyo Tourist Pass, as a foreign passport is required to purchase it. This pass is like an all-access subway pass for the NYC subway, Toronto TTC, and (hypothetically) London’s Tube. This pass covers Tokyo’s subway lines, but not the JR Trains. Please read below for further details. Updated 15 Feb 2019.
