to find where you are going?
Many streets don’t have names, and buildings aren’t
always numbered in order. Use maps and ask your concierge to write
directions in Japanese so you will have an easier time if you have to
ask for help. Buses are complicated unless you know Japanese. Most of
the bus drivers do not know English. Cars are even worse, since there
is little parking and streets are like mazes. Subways are safe,
inexpensive and have maps that are easy to follow with color coding to
find the right connection. You can easily get tickets at vending
machines. Taxis, although not cheap, can be good for short trips.
For the best rates, you
should try to exchange at a
bank, most open between 9am to 5pm. You may also get better rates for
traveler checks rather than cash.
