From half-price shinkansen tickets to cheap unlimited weekend passes, travelling to other parts of Japan is cheaper than ever right now. All the same, there’s something to be said for a staycation weekend in Tokyo – especially when you can get unlimited rides on the Tokyo Metro for two whole days.
Tokyo Metro is now offering the Metro and Grutto pass, which includes two 24-hour unlimited metro passes, plus a booklet of coupons for discounted – and sometimes free – admission to around 90 museums, galleries and attractions within Tokyo until January 31 2021. 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, Ueno Zoo, Yumenoshima Tropical Greenhouse Dome and Tokyo Sea Life Park with minimal, if any, additional cost.
The deal, priced at ¥2,870, saves you ¥530 compared to buying the two metro passes and the coupon book individually. The Metro and Grutto pass is available at the Tokyo Metro Museum and all Tokyo Metro ticket offices, except the Nakano, Nishi-Funabashi and Shibuya locations. Be sure to get in quick, though – only 9,000 of these passes available.
