5 things you should know before getting on a train in Tokyo
1) Different tickets for different train operators
There are several train operators on Tokyo’s transport system: two subway operators, JR, and a few private railway companies. You must buy a ticket for each operator unless you have a special ticket for travelling on the trains of two connected operators. Consider buying a prepaid card, such as Suica or Pasmo.
