Transportation in Tokyo

With 9 million daily passengers across 285 stations, Tokyo metro system is one of the largest in the world. The stations are all alpha-numerically labeled, so every station gets a letter based on the name of its line. It is by far the easiest way to navigate the city and it runs between 5am to midnight everyday.

You will receive a Tokyo Metro All-line Pass to enjoy unlimited rides on the network.

Commitment to Safety

Tokyo is an exciting, beautiful city, and we’ll be with you every step of the way as you explore it. Our International Internship Program Program in Tokyo is run by a dedicated and knowledgeable team of Absolute staff. We have years of experience welcoming international students to Tokyo and ensuring the safety of our students abroad.

The security department is on call 24 hours a day and 24-7 front desk security is available for you at your housing. Each participant must present his or her Residence ID card in order to enter the residence and access the facilities. Visitors are also required to sign in at the front desk and leave their ID card. The closest outpatients’ clinic is only a minute way by walking from the student residence in case you would fall ill or have an accident.

All cultural excursions and weekend activities in Tokyo have been coordinated with student safety as our top priority. Upon arrival, you’ll have an orientation to familiarize yourself with the housing facilities, neighborhood and public transport. You’ll also be provided with key contact information along with guidance on health and emergency procedures, and staying safe throughout your summer in Japan.
