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.
