Tokyo- Navigating

Jump to last reply

Ok I have the Tokyo Streetwise map and the Tokyo atlas and I now have a greater appreciation of why folks can get lost easily in this city. Aside from some major streets or Dori's which are named, many many streets are not named. Tokyo uses a far different address system. This much. Is clear, know which subway line you need, know the station to exit and just as important know what exit to use at your station. Stay away from the mega stations as these are huge, complex, with many lines and levels. Once you exit your station you may have a major street for reference but I surmise beyond that you will need a good sense of direction and use landmarks as you go. What ever you do, do not lose tract of how to get back to your station.
Ok now have I got it right, anything I missed ?
