Bus

Toei (www.kotsu.metro.tokyo.jp/eng/services/bus.html) runs an extensive bus network, though it's rarely more convenient than the subway.

  • Fares are ¥210/110 per adult/child; there are no transfer tickets. Pay by IC pass (prepaid rechargeable Suica and Pasmo cards) or deposit your fare into the box as you enter the bus; there's a change machine at the front of the bus that accepts ¥1000 notes.
  • Most buses have digital signage that switches between Japanese and English (otherwise listen for your stop). Signal the bus to stop in advance of the approaching stop by pushing one of the buttons near the seats.
