** Transportation [#o5850197]
Tokyo offers a variety of transportation means, from trains, buses, monorails to water buses and ships. Use them wisely and you will have much less stress to travel within Tokyo. 

Japan Rail Pass is a great choice to save your money if you plan to visit other regions in Japan besides Tokyo. It is a special discount train pass sold only to tourists from outside Japan and is good for Shinkansen (bullet trains) and other JR express and local trains. 
For example, it takes 2 hours and 20 mins from Tokyo to Kyoto (500km) and Shinkansen departs every 10 mins.
