Suica Card

Hi,

Just thinking about the Suica Card for our upcoming trip, how does it work for the four us using it to pay for the train if you tap when going through the barriers? Do we need a card each?


Thanks


Louise

We are just back tonight. We bought the Suica card but rarely used it as we used the Yamanote line which was free with the JR Rail Pass. It probably depends where you stay though. You do just tap it at the barrier.

Edit: I was suffering jet lag last night - you dont tap it at the barrier. you go to the ticket machine and pay with the card there. In Kyoto you scan the card when getting off the bus.

I had one and used it for buying things in the parks (every Disney shop / stall takes them - bar the very very mobile carts that sold bottles only), and I used it to buy food and drinks outside the parks too in Tokyo - as I did not want pockets of coins at the end of the holiday. Used them in Tokyo Hands store to buy things too!

But as said above, if you have JR Pass then the only things for travel you would use it for would be non-JR lines like the underground, and paying for Disney monorail.

Just tap at barrier. It flashes up remaining balance so you can see if you have plenty

Yes you will need one card each. It's a bit like an Oyster card in London - you charge it up and then tap as you go in/out of barriers on the trains/underground or bus. I also used it a lot just to buy things in shops - most convenience stores accept them and also vending machines so I actually got way more use out of it than I thought!
