A Tokyo subway map and other Tokyo train maps should be part of your Tokyo travel planning if you intend to use the public transportation system. It's really important once you decide where you're going to stay to figure out what station and train lines you're going to be needing the most.
This Tokyo subway map is provided by Tokyo metro and gives you a great overview of how the lines are all connected and which areas of Tokyo are covered by which lines.
You can use either the train station names or the number coding system you can see on the map as your guide. The number system is only used on the Tokyo subway system. The colour coding of the lines signifies the different lines and the key is provided on the map for you.
This little Tokyo subway guide book is small enough to fit in your pocket so it's easy to carry round with you. It also shows you a close up of each line along with information about the key stops and what to expect at the stations when you get there.
Also noted are important landmarks and buildings at each station so you can quickly get a sense of where you are and which exits you need to use to get to your intended destination.
