My first trip to Japan.


This app helped me when I traveled to Japan in August of 2017. It is really helpful and not at all confusing.

Lost in the subway


Got super stoked on this app and was flying to Tokyo the next day. When I got to Narita I went to the train used the app to figure out where I needed to go..... Then fail half the stations we stopped on we're not on the map... None of the KS line was there so I had no clue when to get off..... I got off early only to get on but once I got to the JR line it got worse because I managed to get on the wrong train after asking for help and using the app to show a worker where I was trying to go...... Good thing taxis are around because It was getting late and I need to find my hotel. Not travel further away. If you have cell service on your phone this would be great. But relying on the free wifi to help you is a total fail.

Not really user friendly for foreigners


This app only finds the routes and fares from station to station. It is not foreigner friendly. For example, it works perfectly finding the route from Shinjuku station to Asakusa station but not be able to locate route from Shinjuku station to Tokyo Skytree. You have to know Tokyo Skytree station name in order to use this app. I have just returned from Tokyo few days ago. I used the "City Rail Map" and conjunction with Apple Map navigated my routes while in Tokyo.
