How can I use JR rail pass in Tokyo city?

I am planning to buy the 7-day pass. During the 7 day, I will stay in Tokyo city center area for shopping and city sightseeing for 2 days. I am wondering if I can use JR rail pass for Tokyo city metro? Thank you.


Hello there,

The metro/subway is not covered by the JR Pass. You can however use the local JR network within the city. Which will get you nearly everywhere.

We have a useful collection of city maps for you here.

Hope this helps,


Good, Daniel-san. No need to add anything further. Except, I can only visit Japan for three months at a time, not a week.
