Tokyo Metro signage system

The Tokyo Metro signage system is extremely well designed, and thanks to English language station names, extremely easy to use. Each line is colour coded, a circle symbolises the station and colour coded rings the different line connections. Hiragana station names are written vertically, whilst Roman character names are turned to read from top to botom. Times between stops are displayed so that precise journey times can be calculated.
