Hints for travelling in Japan

Compiled by Kathy Ombler
• Tokyo subway – ticket machines offer English translations; you can buy a single trip, day pass or buy a pasmo card (available from the ‘pink’ machines), these can be topped up as needed. (The pasmo card also can be used in 7 Eleven stores and some vending machines.)
• Subway cell phone etiquette – put phones on silent and don’t have loud conversations.
