The R & S Map provides quick access to this complex city, and is of particular use to short-term visitors.
Conventional route maps function only as route-finders and have been made obsolete by todays digital information systems. The R & S Map, on the other hand, serves as an orientation guide and gives a good conceptual view of the city. Tokyos train stations, rather than its streets, are the important feature of the city. For this reason, because the R & S Map shows all lines and stations as well as geographic information, such as parks, islands, etc. in relative position to each other, it is possible to get the idea of a schematized city map.
