"Tokyo Metro--The Underground Mysteries 2016" Puzzle-Solving & City Exploration Game event


As a joint collaboration with SCRAP Co., Ltd. (Head Office in: Shibuya Ward, Tokyo; Representative: Takao Kato), which plans and operates "Real Escape Games," Tokyo Metro (Head Office in: Taito Ward, Tokyo; President: Yoshimitsu Oku) will hold a "Tokyo Metro--The Underground Mysteries" event for a limited time between Saturday, October 1, 2016 and Tuesday, January 31, 2017. "Tokyo Metro--The Underground Mysteries" is a "Puzzle-Solving & City Exploration Game" that encourages people to walk around Tokyo in search of the goal while solving the various puzzles planted in the city.

The past two "Tokyo Metro--The Underground Mysteries" events were met with considerable acclaim, attracting over 60,000 players in total. With the 2016 event, which marks the game's third, the game has undergone a further evolution in the form of having its English version available throughout the event's duration. Now, non-Japanese-speaking foreigners can also experience this new angle to the appeal of the city of Tokyo while riding Tokyo Metro subways.

With Tokyo Metro stations and the entire city of Tokyo as its backdrop, this "real-life" game has players use a 24-hour ticket and puzzle-solving kit to actually make their way around the city and solve puzzles that have been hidden within Tokyo and Tokyo Metro stations as they attempt to reach the goal.
