Tokyo City Urban Hike and Subway Adventure

Tokyo, Japan

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at my hotel (Google Map Directions) close to Shinjuku Station (Google Map Directions) and finished at Otemachi Station (Google Map Directions), but the walk could be started and finished at almost any location and public transport options are plentiful.
  • Length: 24.5km of which 4.5km was via subway (15.2mi of which 2.8mi was via subway) in about 8hr
  • Grade: Long but easy. Mainly flat with some stairs. From Ebisu, I took the subway to Roppongi and checked out Tokyo City View on the 52nd floor of Roppongi Hills (not included on the map but it is easy to find from the train station). I then got back on the subway to Kamiyacho and continued walking. With the subway shortcut, the walk is reduced to 20km. I started at about 8 am and finished at about 4 pm, so I wasn’t walking at a brisk pace as there was plenty to see.
  • Date Walked: 5th of November 2017
