Question: If I buy a Tokyo Metro day pass and ride past Shibuya on the Fukutoshin/Toyoko Lines to change to the Hibiya Line at Naka-Meguro, am I cheating on fares?

Since I won't pass a ticket gate at all during this...

Where are you starting and where are you ending? Those are the important parts. Also, how does a Day Pass measure? Does it have a limit?

if anyone can explain why if using a third rail system is more appropriate to use the gauge in 1435?

Technically yes, but since you will be transferring to the Hibiya Line at Nakameguro, it's doable without any fuss.

I assume you mean as it applies to the situation in Japan. The choice of power supply type is more or less related to the which railways the subway system connects to. Typically 1067mm gauge subways were built with connections to suburban lines in mind, thus the use of overhead catenary. Most 1435mm systems are municipal, self-contained systems, thus the use of third rail which allows smaller tunnel bores and their lower price tags. Of course, there are exceptions, such as the Osaka Municipal Subway Sakaisuji Line, which is 1435mm but uses overhead catenary, as it connects with the Hankyu Senri and Kyoto Lines. Another is the Toei Asakusa Line, with its connections to Keikyu and Keisei Lines.

You can do this with just a normal ticket as well; I do this all the time since there's no easy way to get to Roppongi from Shibuya (except the bus).

REPOST:

Tobu 500 Series "Revaty"



Last 27th of January Tobu Railway presented the new 500 series "Revaty" for its new limited express Revaty Kegon, Kinu, Aizu, Ryomo and Skytree Liner and Urban Park Liner to revenue in service from 21 April 2017.

Quote:









The new trains built by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, with exterior and interior styling overseen by Japanese industrial designer Ken Okuyama. The driving cabs at each end of the three-car trainsets will include a gangway connection to allow trains to be coupled or split en route.

The trains will have active suspension, a first for trains operated by Tobu, and use permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) traction motors.

The exterior livery consists of "champagne beige" with "forest green" and "future blue" (Tobu's corporate colour) highlights around the windows.

Each three-car set will have a seating capacity of 161 passengers. Seat pitch will be 1,000 mm. Interior lighting will use LED lighting. Each trainset includes a universal access toilet, western-style toilet, and urinal. Wi-Fi and at-seat AC power sockets will also be provided.

If you go through the Orange colored wicket @ Shibuya, your ticket will be returned to you so you may transfer to the Fukutoshin | Toyoku train there.

Or just use Omotesando station, it may be a change of train, but it's a cross platform transfer, which is still better than having to go down six or eight floors.

Either way you should take a look at this web site that gathered all the underground diagrams of stations in Japan.

https://matome.naver.jp/odai/2134278627057938301

For example simplified Shibuya station diagram actually gives you more detail.

Just the sheer complexity of all those platforms makes it a work of art! Massive infrastructure is art!

How it works the fare system in through services in Tokyo Metro lines?

For example: I enter at Ginza Station, but I want to take the Tobu train to Takenotsuka Statin. Can I buy a Tokyo Metro ticket for it? Are there Tobu vending machines in Ginza Station? Or this trip is possible only with Pasmo card?

Another example: in Otemachi Station, I want to take the Odakyu Romancecar limited express train to Odawara. Are there Odakyu vending machines on Otemachi Station? Or I need to buy a Tokyo Metro ticket and, arriving in Odawara, buy a second ticket?

As I recall, you buy a Tokyo Metro ticket, but the fare for any trip crossing the boundary from one company's network to another carries a surcharge. Basically you wind up paying the full fare as if the trips had been two separate legs and you left the faregates for one and re entered the other company's for the other, except just on one ticket.

In the specific case of the Romancecar, you're going to need special Limited Express tickets, which you can buy at Otemachi Station's (or any other Romancecar station's) ticket offices beforehand (from one month before your journey up to just before departure time).

Alternatively, you can buy them on-line too, but I find their interface difficult to fathom and navigate, and you probably have to take a receipt and exchange them at the ticket office for a "real" ticket anyway.

For normal trips between various operators, yeah, just buy a minimum-fare ticket and do fare adjustments at your destination, or go with Suica/Pasmo. The IC cards are way more convenient.

+1 for using IC cards here. Also remember, you pay full prices rounded up to the nearest ¥10 per fare segment when NOT using a Suica/PASMO/Toica/etc since the TVMs don't take anything below ¥10 coins.

JR Route and Station Numbering Continues

The East Japan Railway company is continuing to put up new signage to identify the roots within greater Tokyo instead of using a simple color along with various names so that International users of the system can more quickly identify them on the network. Here are a few pictures I've taken to show the progress.


E233 LCD screens have the station codes along with the route codes for other JR lines displayed. The English announcements also say this as well.

You can see more examples in this photo album as I collect some good shots.
