Rejoice, tourists to Tokyo! There is a new Tokyo Subway Ticket available to domestic and international visitors costing only 800 yen (approximately $8) that allows one day of unlimited rides on all Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway lines (this is a lower price than the current Common 1-day ticket!) Prices going down in Tokyo? No savvy traveler is going to pass this up! For those folks who plan to be spending more time in Tokyo, 2-day and 3-day tickets are also available, and they are a great, affordable way to zip around Tokyo, hassle free!
Tickets for children and adults are available for purchase at Narita and Haneda airport sales counters, and also at regional travel agencies. Hey, hold that door open! This is my stop!

@edwinjoo trus ada yang buat 2 ato 3 hari juga...:( ayo ke Tokyo lagi..hehe..
Great deal!! Also it'll stop tourists (like me) from standing in front of ticket machines, slow and confused while they buy their tickets, and holding everyone up :)
You can get a day pass for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (Official DART page) for about 4 bucks, good on all busses and rail.
Unlimited rides? Thats awesome. We have that here in Chicago but here its $10 for unlimited and it's for a whole day. It used to be $5.75 :(
Well, that's not entirely true in some places, John. It's true that suica isn't discounted, but it sometimes IS less than the cash fare. When the tax went up on April 1 it affected ticket prices. This made some ticket prices odd numbers or numbers ending in 5. Since the transportation companies don't want to deal with 1 and 5 yen coins, those fares get rounded up when you pay cash but remain the same if you use an IC card. So a bus near my friend's place is 143 yen on an IC card but 150 yen with cash. Not a big difference, and not technically a discount - but sort of, compared to cash.
Suica offers no discounts. It's just a money card you can use on any rail line in Tokyo and other cities.
Actually, New York made the decision early on that a subway ride would cost the same no matter how far or long your ride. It's a fundamentally democratizing model. No matter where you live - which since the elevator is increasingly a reflection of how wealthy you are - for one price, the city is at your feet.
