Tokyo Metro will expand the number of locations where its "Tokyo Subway Ticket" special passenger tickets for foreign visitors to Japan can be purchased!


Starting Monday, October 16, 2017, Tokyo Metro Co., Ltd. (Head Office in: Taito Ward, Tokyo; President: Akiyoshi Yamamura; "Tokyo Metro" below) will make its "Tokyo Subway Tickets," which allow foreign visitors to Japan to take unlimited rides on all nine Tokyo Metro lines and all four Toei Subway Lines for a total of thirteen lines, available for purchase at certain Tokyo Metro commuter pass sales counters in addition to preexisting sales locations.

Until now, these special passenger tickets were only available for purchase at the likes of locally-based travel agencies overseas, airports, hotels and certain traveler information centers. Based on the results of a questionnaire administered to foreign visitors to Japan in which many of them cited their desire to purchase Tokyo Subway Tickets in stations, Tokyo Metro has elected to offer the tickets for purchase at certain commuter pass sales counters

Going forward, Tokyo Metro will continue endeavoring to make its railway services more convenient to use for foreign visitors to Japan.
