Although Western visitors may be reassured of Tokyo’s seemingly Western appearance simple navigation in the city often proves to be nothing less than a headache. Many streets remain nameless, and tourists must use other points of reference. Don’t fret too much! Japanese people are known for being exceptionally friendly and willing to share a helping hand to tourists. Regardless, equipping yourself with multiple maps is a good idea for both trekking through the city and maintaining your sanity during the venture.
