Most subway signage is also in English. The mass transit system(s) is (are) great. The major confusion is that there are multiple overlapping systems (JR and subway, for example) and some locals are only familiar with the one they regularly use. There are some mobile phone apps which will provide the most time/cost efficient routing. Taxi's are honest and not overly expensive.

The local neighborhood tourist offices offer free English language walking tours (tipping not allowed). I've found it an extremely easy city to get around in for the non-English speaker.
