Tokyo Departure Board is here to make getting the train easy. Take the stress out of navigating the overwhelming network of Tokyo’s trains, metros and subways with Kankō-tsuru as your companion.

You can see live departures from stations just like you can see on the platform departure boards, except this is always in English!

We make it easy for foreign tourists who don’t understand Japanese to navigate the trains, metro or subway in Tokyo. Use the app to get from the airport to your hotel, or from Shinjuku to Shibuya.

When you get on a train you can see the time you’ll arrive at your destination. We support all of the train, metro and subway lines within Tokyo, such as the Yamanote line, JR lines, subway and metro.
