There are many apps available in English. The apps will tell you what train to take and what transfers you will have to take. Japan is known for utilizing trains as their main source of transportation. Google maps is also very helpful in getting tourists around and explaining which trains to take. While using trains, get a train card. Getting a train card means you don’t need a ticket. There are several train companies in Tokyo. Making transfers can be difficult when needing specific tickets, the train card allows for commuters to transfer from one train to another without worrying about different train line tickets. Train cards can be purchased in advance at the airport and if you don’t utilize all the money loaded on it you can get the difference refunded prior to leaving Japan.
