I can't really suggest what to do - you have perused japan-guide.com?

As far as the subway in Tokyo, the signage is excellent and most stations near tourist sites have lots of English. Usually there is a big sign showing what sites are near which exit and the numbers are clear. I don't think I ever got lost in Tokyo subways. imo the signage and maps are much better than where I live - NYC....

Just heard from my son who is in Tokyo. He was charged $250 to travel by taxi from the airport to his hotel. He was shocked. Apparently they encourage using public transportation. He learned that lesson the hard way!

It's a 45 mile trip through one of the densest urban areas in the world, and can easily take a taxi driver an hour and a half, more in rush hour.

Given that there is such comprehensive public transport available, I think it's not unreasonable for that particular taxi route to be a high cost one.
