I will live in Shiroi from april and I wanted to buy a pass to Tokyo to look for work. Now I don’t think I will. When I think I am angry when the price of the subway ticket in Paris is raised each year!

Thank you very much for this. After 6 years of living in Inzai I can finally know why my Teiki is so expensive. Right now my 6 month pass from Inzaimakinohara to Asakusabashi station costs a mind breaking 244,320 JPY. Just like you state in your article here, my company pays for the expense to get to work so I don’t feel the impact so much as others do. Our other option is to use the Narita Line that has just one set of rails and very limited service. Hopefully, my daughter won’t mind using that line once she gets to high school age.
