Although I have been to Tokyo several times in the past and know reasonably well the city, I never realized before that Tokyo had a a tram. I am currently living for a couple of months close to Mukohara and doing some work at Waseda....More

We rented a house in Arakawa and one day jumped on the streetcar and went to the nearby amusement park. We were lucky to get on one of the old fashioned cars which was a treat. It was fun to ride down the middle of...More

The tram ride was fantastic and showed a quieter side to busy Tokyo. Just a word of warning, though -- we caught the tram from Waseda on a Saturday morning and it was PACKED. Like, jammed-up-against-a-window-with-one-stranger-wedged-in-your-armpit-and-another-one's-elbow-stuck-in-your-eye kind of crowded. So you may want to pick...More

What a great experience this was! Seeing people going about their business as usual, hopping on and off the tram. It took us to places that are off the usual tourist trail and well worth the trip. We picked the coldest day Tokyo had experienced...More

Great for those who want to discover a quiet Tokyo. Not in Sakura blossom or Autumn, but people's daily lives in the hot summer here remind me of my childhood. With 400 yens, you can buy one-day ticket and be able to check-in and check-out...More
