Keep in mind, no train in midnight in Tokyo!

TOP_keep in mind, train.074

Remember, Japanese have a last train. It will not bring you back to home after 1am. Do not stay up too late if you do not want to pay a pricy taxi… (even party is still going on)
Unlike NYC, Japanese trains are basically not available after midnight. Even most popular train, Yamanote-line (a circular line located at very center of Tokyo), does not run from around 1:30am to 4:30am.

So if you miss the train, you have normally two options A. take a taxi or B. keep drinking to wait a morning train (Uber is not quite popular in Japan yet).

Either way, you will pay good amount of money (if you ride on taxi for an hour, you would pay appx. $100 USD) or you will be yelled by your boss being sleepy for all day (happens to me often).

I would be really pleased if train companies think twice and start mid-night operation (once in an hour will be totally cool!). I know they are doing great job for their punctuality. BUT I don’t really mind it because they come every 5 min. Rather we hate to wait 3 hours for morning train…
