Yeah, Yokohama's is pretty small by comparison though. They have "3 lines" but operate as a single line with continuous service by one train. They are opening a new line soon that is a separate system rather than an extension, although they are planning another extension as well (but that's just planning). The Minatomirai line is a subway but an entity of its own, it just happens to be located in central Yokohama.

Keep in mind though, Yokohama is Japan's second largest city (it is not Osaka), so it should have its own subway system.

Given the population, Toronto offers better subway service than Yokohama, but there are so many commuter services going through Yokohama it doesn't matter much.

Amsterdam - nothing special, the old lines look pretty bad

Rotterdam - nice and efficient, nothing special though

Brussels - the same

London - for me the most interesting one, really nice classic system with some interesting new developments

Paris - also a classic one

New York - ugly, dirty and smelly, but also a classic!

Stockholm - really nice system, underground stations like a cave with nice pieces of art

Oslo - also an interesting one, where the metro lines branch out into the hills like an old interurban railroad

Moscow - another classic, great archiecture, and really MASS transport

St. Petersburg - looks almost exactly the same as in Moscow

Novosibirsk - also a bit like the other Russian systems, but less impressive

Beijing - not an impressive network for such a large city!

Pyongyang - monumental, inspired by the Moscow metro. Very deep, very impressive

Vienna - nice and efficient

Toronto - typically North-American style

Chicago - the underground sections are nothing special, but the "El" is hard to beat!

Lyon - modern neat system

Lille - nice automatic system

Berlin - another classic one, very interesting as well as the suburban S-Bahn

Athens - I only travelled on the classic line 1, I would like to travel on the new lines too

Lisbon - nice and efficient

Glasgow - weird, very low and narrow trains, even more so than in London

Barcelona - another in the category nice and efficient

I think those are 'em all, perhaps I missed out on one or two. In short, the modern systems are often the neatest, but I like the classic systems more. There's more history to it, more to tell about.

One metro system I would really like to try is Madrid, they made very impressive improvements in the last decades.
