The Suica and Pasmo cards are prepaid smart cards that allows you to use most public transport (metro, trains, buses, monorail) in Japan.The card is debited for every trip or purchase you make when you touch the card to the reader. They can be used throughout Japan.

The cards are already topped up with 1500 yen ready for use (on top of a 500 yen deposit). The price of your journey is deducted automatically after every single use. If you use all of the credit on the card, you can top up easily at train stations. It can also be used as a sort of electronic wallet to pay for small purchases in convenience stores, vending machines, or even to pay for parking, taxi and a selection of shops.

You can also keep your Suica / Pasmo Card for future use, as it is valid for 10 years. Or return it at the train station at the end of your trip to get back the 500 yen deposit.
