There is just so much to do in Tokyo, especially if you're interested in the city's vibrant arts and culture scene. To help you make the most of your time and budget in this great city, Tokyo now has a money-saving pass that gets you unlimited rides on the Tokyo Metro for two whole days, plus access to all the best museums and galleries in Tokyo.

The Metro and Grutto pass by Tokyo Metro includes two 24-hour unlimited metro passes, plus a Grutto ticket (available in the form of a QR-code e-ticket or physical card) for discounted – and sometimes free – admission to over 100 museums, galleries and attractions within Tokyo. That means you’ll have two whole days to explore the city and visit venues including the National Museum of Nature and Science, The National Art Center, Tokyo Sea Life Park, Tokyo City View and Rikugien with minimal, if any, additional cost. Do note that while the offer is available for sale until January 31 2024, the Grutto Pass is only valid for two months after activation.

The deal, priced at ¥3,130, saves you ¥570 compared to buying the two metro passes and the Grutto ticket individually. The Metro and Grutto pass is available together as a set at Tokyo Metro ticket offices (except Nakano, Nishifunabashi and Shibuya stations) and the Tokyo Metro MuseumBe sure to get in quick, though – there are only 5,000 of these passes available. 

Alternatively, you can purchase the Grutto pass on its own for ¥2,500 without the Tokyo Metro benefits. More information here.
