Train, subway

Train tickets can be purchased at automatic ticket vending machines near the station gate. Japanese yen is needed in cash.
First, use the route map to find your destination, and insert the correct amount of yen. Then, press the button displaying the amount of yen, and your train ticket will be issued. If you are taking the train within the same prefecture multiples times, it may be more convenient to purchase a day ticket.

 

 

Express Trains

Tickets for bullet trains and airport express trains can be purchased at staffed ticket vending stations, where credit cards are accepted. Please be sure to give yourself plenty of time to purchase the ticket, especially for airport express trains.

 

 

Bus

Within Tokyo Prefecture, buses generally require payment upon boarding, while other buses generally require payment upon disembarking. It can be hard to find bus boarding stops or stops along the bus route, even for Japanese people. You can check with your bus driver, though not all of them speak English.

 

 

Express Bus/High-speed Bus

If you are visiting area such as Mt. Fuji from outlet malls or from within the city of Tokyo, you can use an express bus, which requires a reservation. Buses departing from Shinjuku toward Kawaguchi Lake are often especially crowded and there’s a chance that the bus you want to take may be full.

 

 

Taxi

Japanese have a capacity of four people. You can pick up a taxi at taxi boarding areas as well as by waving an available taxi down from the side of the road, and available taxis will have a lighted sign on the windshield displaying “空車” (“Empty”). Fares are paid upon disembarking, and taxis that accept credit cards are increasing, but be sure to ask your driver when you board if credit cards are OK.

 

 

Wi-Fi

Airports and cafes in Japan that provide internet connection via public wireless LAN are quickly increasing, where visitors can enjoy high-speed internet.
Once an application is downloaded, ID and passwords do not need to be reentered.
