Hi, is the JR pass valid also in metro in Tokyo?


Hi there,

I'm afraid not :(

You can buy day tickets for the metro that give good value if you plan on using it a lot:

You can however use the JR Pass on the JR Yamanote Line, which goes to several popular tourist areas. So it is up to your itinerary. If going all over, then you might consider a 2 or 3 day subway pass. The one day pass would be very hard to make worthwhile though.
