The Japanese are a very respectful people. It is very important that they do not embarass themselves or you the traveler. When asking for directions, you must ask 3 people. Even if someone does not know how to get to a destination, they will guess. They feel a wrong answer is better than no answer at all. So using the idea that majority rules, 3 is a good number. Also, since tokyo is built on different levels,not only is it important to ask weather you need to go right and left, it is important to ask if you need to go up or down at any point. We got lost many times because we did not realize the street we wanted was up or down a stair way or ramp. Think three dimensionally in Tokyo and you will have it made!!!!! report a problem

When traveling also be sure that the train station is on the proper line you are traveling. We asked for a particular stop and ended up someplace else--later did we find two of the same or very similar names of the stops.....
