My first suggestion for anyone arriving in Tokyo is to go ahead and get your Pasmo card. This will be your ticket around Tokyo & even all of Japan. You load money on the card and literally 'tap' through all the different public transportation terminals. It is quick, easy, and definitley a necessity during your stay.

My Pasmo is getting a lot of use of course. Over the course of my Day 3 here in Tokyo I walked about 11 miles & probably navigated through the city on 15 some odd trains. The trains range from spacious and clean, to very crowded… and clean. The trains are almost beautiful when compared to other mega cities around the world. Probably the biggest difference between the trains in Tokyo & lets say New York City, is that the people onboard are completely silent. You can literally hear a pin drop. No one is blaring music from their personal playlists & speakers or beating away at drums while people break dance in between passengers. The level of respect the Tokyoites have one for another is refreshing. I might be waiting in line to board the train surrounded by literally 100 people and I have yet to be pushed or shoved. The city is face passed, but so well organized.
Stayed tuned for videos of my experience at the busiest cross walk in the WORLD & my adventures through the bright lights and busy streets of Shibuya.
