There are two streetcar (also known as tram) lines in Tokyo, in which the more popular one is Toden Arakawa Line, running through northern and eastern Tokyo outside the main tourist areas. There are 30 stops along its route, from Waseda to Minowabashi and vice versa.
Although you won’t get far using a streetcar in Tokyo, it’s still a fun way to reach some of the city’s crucial parts:
Streetcar hours: 05:40 – 23:00 daily
Streetcar schedule: Every 7 minutes during rush hours; every 10 to 15 minutes during off-rush hours
Streetcar fares: Flat fare 170 yen ($1.64) regardless of distance for one ride, and 400 yen ($3.82) for the one-day economy pass, which allows unlimited use of the streetcar for one day
Paying streetcar fares
– Buy the ticket (one-use or one-day ticket) on the streetcar from a conductor when you get on the streetcar for the first time
– If you have the one-day ticket, every time you get on the streetcar, all you have to do is just show the ticket to the conductor
