Paris and Tokyo Metro Map

Sorry to be hitting with all of those commuting typo q's but writing a little paper on Netherlands,France and Japan. Does anyone have any idea about the typeface used in both the French metro map and the Japanese one?

Paris Metro uses Parisine, which started as a custom typeface for RATP and has since developed into a rather large family.

Tokyo I think uses various styles of Helvetica.

BTW such questions are usually better served on the Type ID Board.

Thank you very much altaira, tho that link looks a bit like a calender/events page.

OMG sorry, it was broken. (That calendar thing seems to be what happens on Typophile when other sites would throw a 404.)
Here's the correct link: Type ID Board

Cheers!
will make sure to go there for font IDs in the future.
