PASMO / Suica

PASMO / Suica

PASMO and Suica are both IC cards for riding railways, subways and buses. Basically, Suica is for JR and PASMO is for other railways and buses, but they are interchangeable.
If you buy a new IC card with an advanced payment, you can enter the train station by touching the card reader on the automatic ticket gate (or at the entrance of the bus for a bus ride) with the card, and the fare will be deducted automatically. These cards can also be used for shopping as electronic money at registered shops (e.g. many shops in the train station and convenient stores).
PASMO cards can be purchased at locations such as private railway stations, subway stations, and bus offices that accept them.
Suica cards can be purchased at card issuing machines, Moshimoshi ticket vending machines, multifunctional vending machines, or Midori-no-Madoguchi offices at JR East Japan Stations in the Suica area.
*500 yen deposit is included in the purchasing price of both PASMO and Suica, and the deposit is returned when returning the IC card.

  • PASMO: From 1,000 yen (500 yen deposit included)
