Get To Know Tokyo Metro At 2017 SMX Convention Center's Travel Tour Expo This February 10 - 12

Japan remains as one of the most favorite countries visited by Filipinos. Though I always hear woes about getting a visa, this is never a hindrance to a lot of our fellow kababayans. Last Thursday, I was able to join the press launching of Tokyo Metro together with media and fellow bloggers. I learned quite a few about it being the first established in the continent of Asia. If you are or you know anyone going to Tokyo, I definitely recommend taking the Tokyo train stations!  

In 2016, an increase of 347, 800 Filipinos were able to see the Land of Cherry Blossoms. That is almost 30% increase compared to the previous year. That is why it is just right that this coming Travel Tour Expo at SMX on February 9-12 we should see more push to travel to Japan.  That's the main reason why Tokyo Metro, the one behind running the capital of Japan's subways and railways is in the country to promote it as the best way to get around fastest in Tokyo to Filipino tourists.

Using Tokyo Metro isn't only about efficiency because these stations are already connections to many of Tokyo's tourist attractions including Ginza, Omotesando, Asakusa, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ikebukuro. No need to go far or take another expensive cab ride. Just a few walks and you'll be finding another a great spot that showcases Japan's beautiful scenery.

Why you should use Tokyo Subway Ticket
  • Unlimited travel on all 13 lines of Tokyo Metro & Metropolitan Subway
  • Choose from these 3 options: 24 hrs = 800 yen, 48 hrs = 1,200 yen and 72 hrs = 1, 500 yen
  • FREE wifi
One day of unlimited ride for 800 yen costs only a bowl of ramen! Normally it costs 1, 190 yen. This offer is only for tourists and travelers in Japan.

The Welcome Board
Welcome Boards are installed in 14 stations that show information related to subway tickets, route guides for major tourist spots and route maps. For example, if you want to know how to get to your desired station and how it will cost, this is the answer.

You will see these boards at stations Ueno, Shinjuku, Asakusa, Tokyo, Ikebukuro, Shimbashi, Akihabara, Ginza, Ropongi, Omotesando, Shibuya, Meji-jingumage, Shinnjuku-sanchome and Oshiage.

Ticket Information Offices
If you have questions that can't be answered just by checking out the Welcome Boards, you are free to ask the staff stationed here who speaks English.

Where to buy one
You can buy at Narita airport, Haneda, Tokyo Metro ticket information offices and some Big Camera stores.
