Public Transportaion

Public transportation system is great in Japan, especially in metropolitan areas.
In Tokyo, it is only one person in 4-5 people who owns a car.

This card in the picture above is called “suica”.
It is an electronic swiping card.
Once you charge money onto this card ahead of time, all you need to do is to swipe this card on the machine when you get in or out of the gate.
The machine at the gate will calculate the fee and deduct it from your card.
