Missing the last train is part of life in Tokyo. Central lines, like the JR Yamanote Line, run as late as 1:20 am but many lines shut down earlier—but they get started again, for the most part, before 5 am. There’s a reason that Tokyo clubs and bars stay open to dawn: there’s nowhere else to go once you’ve missed your last train. Here are some basic tips to avoid being one of those left stranded outside the station with your night ruined.


  • Keep the party going
  • Hike it home
  • Take a taxi
  • Crash in a manga café
  • Find a cheap spot to crash
