Tokyo tour

Can we use the JR Pass on the Tokyo Subways?

Hi there,

The JR Pass is not accepted on the Tokyo Subway. You can use it on local JR-Trains however, including the Yamanote line that served most major stations in Tokyo. See this map to get a better idea of what is covered.

Hope this helps,
