One of Tokyo’s busiest and most important train lines is a popular way for visitors to the city to get around. The Yamanote Line is a loop railway which spans over 35km, creating a perimeter around central Tokyo, and connecting some of the city’s biggest urban centres.
In this video, I take you to some of the tourist destinations along the line.
Tourists can experience many of Tokyo’s biggest attractions using an all-day ticket called the Tokunai Pass, which costs only ¥750 (a bargain considering individual trips on the Yamanote start at about ¥140 per use (and more depending on the distance travelled in a single trip). You can buy Tokunai passes from any JR automated ticket machine at stations along the Yamanote Line.
