Tokyo Metro Underground Mysteries Challenge - Best Living Japan

Tokyo Metro Underground Mysteries 2019 – Until Feb 16, 2020

Have fun exploring Tokyo through a real-life puzzle game with the Tokyo Metro Underground Mysteries 2019 challenge. Solve a puzzle and advance to the next location! Our family of four spent the day exploring new areas of Tokyo; a fantastic way to explore Tokyo while enjoying the fall foliage and winter illuminations with friends, family, date or team-building event. There is no time limit so solve at your own pace. We went with our 6 & 8 year old and they loved it.


Purchase a game kit from Voyagin (trusted partner!) OR at the following 7 train stations between 7:40am – 8:00pm; Ueno, Kita-Senju, Shinjuku & Tokyo (sold daily); Ginza & Meiji-jingumae (Sat/Sun/Holidays) during the game period. Shimbashi (sold daily now until Jan 31, 2020). The game kit (2400 JPY) is available now until February 16, 2020 and includes a 24-hour metro train ticket.


The game begins once you purchase your game kit. Solve the first puzzle and it will direct you to your next location. Use the tools in the game kit to solve puzzles. If you get stuck you can go online to request a hint. The Tokyo Metro Underground Mysteries website has a few puzzles on the site to give you an idea of the type of puzzles you’ll have to solve.


To play you need an internet connection and smartphone, cash, walking shoes, water and snacks.

*** Note there was a translation error. A section marked “left” in English when it was written “right” in Japanese.

A few places we visited along the way were Kiyosumi Gardens, the Fukagawa Edo Museum, Sony Ginza Park, etc. Good luck!
