IC card

Prices for trains and buses vary from region to region, and buying tickets is very cumbersome and difficult for foreigners. Also, it takes time to purchase the ticket.
Even if you are staying in Japan for a short stay of about two days per night, we recommend that you buy a transportation IC card such as SUICA or ICOCA. It doesn’t take long to buy this card!
In addition, if you are buying in the Tokyo area, the most recommended is “WELCOME SUICA”, an IC card for foreigners visiting Japan that can be purchased by credit card.
It will be on sale in September 2019, and you can buy it with a credit card, and you don’t need any troublesome procedures such as deposits or refunds.

How to buy

You can buy it at the ticket machine at each station. The name of the card varies by region, but because how to buy it is common, please refer to this by looking at this. This time, i will explain it at suica ticket vending machine in the Tokyo area.

This is the most common ticket vending machine. From the right, the IC card cash addition machine, the ticket vending machine where you can buy tickets, and the ticket vending machine where you can do anything. The remaining two are ticket vending machines exclusively for the Shinkansen and limited express trains. You can also use a credit card. Just keep in mind that not all ticket machines are available. Next is the actual purchase screen.

This is the initial screen at the bottom right. Press the button on the top right to change the language. This time I chose English. (If it is not this screen, click the button with the picture of the IC card from the tab on the left to display this screen.)

Please purchase SUICA of the button in the middle.

Select the required amount.

It is taken 500 yen as a previous fee. This will be back at the time of the refund described later.

If you put in cash, SUICA with a built-in cash amount will come out. That’s it.

If you want to put in more money, you can put it in by putting this IC card in the ticket vending machine and selecting the amount.


Refunds can be made at the counter of each station.


Speaking of which, the station staff will return the amount after deducting the handling fee of 220 yen. However, refunds are not possible outside the IC card area. The areas of the IC card are as follows.
