Helpful Hint: If you take the Ginza Line to Ginza Station, it’s a good idea to figure out which exit you want before you get there, because the station is large and there are a lot of exits.


The orange line is the route of the Ginza Line trains. All of the stops it makes are listed in order. Trains run in both directions.

The color orange shown on the map is the color the trains are painted, and the symbol in the middle of the circle, “G” is the Ginza Line designator.

You will have to go to the Tokyo Metro side of a station to use the Ginza Line.
