Railway electronic money card

There are many railway electronic money cards in Japan. The most representative ones are SUICA and PASMO, which are spreading in the suburbs of Tokyo. There are similar standard cards in other regions.


The electronic money card is the same size as the credit card in which the IC chip is embedded. If you charge cash as electronic money on it with ticket vending machines etc., you can use it instead of a wallet at a convenience store.

Also, if you have enough charges, you can ride a bus or train without buying a ticket.
