Ginza Line: read a guide to the Ginza Line of Tokyo metro, the oldest subway line in Japan and Asia that runs from Shibuya to Asakusa.

Here are some useful tips for using the Tokyo subway system.

1. First buy a pre-paid smartcard, such as a Suica or Pasmo (if purchased in Tokyo, different if purchased elsewhere). They require a refundable 500 yen initial charge, but make subway use much easier than having to buy a paper ticket at a station whenever you ride a train. Simply touch the card for a second on the sensor at the ticket wicket as you pass through.

2. Identify in advance the number of the exit you will need to take at the destination station and ...

3. having identified that exit, board the car closest to that destination exit. You will save time (and be less likely to get lost) if you can board the car that will stop closest to the destination station exit you will leave from. There are charts for that purpose on the station wall, telling you the appropriate cars for each exit at each station, or you can ask a station attendant. " no deguchi ni oriru no de, dono sharyo ni noreba ii desu ka."

4. Mind your manners. Don't eat or drink on the train, remove your backpack if you're standing, don't put luggage on the seat beside you, don't talk on your cell phone, and if you're talking to people, try and keep it subdued.
