On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, Tokyo Metro Co., Ltd. (Head Office in: Taito Ward, Tokyo; President: Akiyoshi Yamamura; “Tokyo Metro” below) and the Bureau of Transportation under the Tokyo Metropolitan Government will open a special website for introducing “Tokyo Subway Ticket” special passenger tickets for travelers (External link).
Tokyo Subway Tickets are convenient and affordable special passenger tickets that foreign travelers who are visiting Japan and certain domestic travelers can use to take unlimited rides on all Tokyo Metro lines and all Toei Subway lines. Since becoming available for purchase in April 2014, the tickets have been very well-received as evidenced by their frequent use by passengers, particularly foreign travelers who are visiting Japan.
Tokyo Metro and the Bureau of Transportation will open a special “Tokyo Subway Ticket” website (“special website” below) in order to create greater awareness among passengers that Tokyo Subway Tickets can be used to sightsee in Tokyo more conveniently and affordably. In addition to introducing Tokyo Subway Tickets, the special website will feature introductions of recommended sightseeing courses, famous sightseeing spots in Tokyo and other areas that can be visited using those tickets in seven different languages (Japanese, English, Chinese (simplified/traditional), Korean, Thai, French and Spanish). Moreover, the special website will also host photos from a dedicated Instagram account where passengers can personally share their experience using the Tokyo subway system as well as host user reviews of subways in Tokyo posted on TripAdvisor.
Going forward, Tokyo Metro and the Bureau of Transportation will continue their endeavors to transmit information so that passengers may enjoy their stay in Tokyo.
Details on this matter are shown in the Attachment.
