How to take the train

I’m hardly the first to say it, but public transport in Japan just can’t be beat. Shinkansen, express trains, local trains, subways, buses, ferries and street cars – we tried them all! Always on time, we were utterly gobsmacked that one single line in Tokyo would have 11-car trains at your stop every 4 minutes.

In Tokyo, we stayed about 3 minutes subway ride from Shinjuku Station — the largest station in the world.  Simply mind-boggling, there are over 200 exits!  Needless to say we got lost very easily, but there was always someone offering to point us in the right direction
