Convenient SUICA

by Akio

Take a look at my tourConvenient SUICA

Let’s buy and use IC Card; SUICA for public transportation!

I always suggest that my customer buy and use SUICA; IC card when I show them around sightseeing destinations in Tokyo and its vicinities. (Picture: Tokyo Station)

Convenient SUICA

SUICA is very convenient and easy to change trains
The IC card will relieve you of buying a ticket at each railroad/subway station and ensure smooth train changes in the greater Tokyo where JR, subway systems, private railroad networks are complicatedly extended. The IC cards for children under 11 years can be purchased at “Ticketing & Travel Center” by showing the passport at each JR station.

Convenient SUICA

Choose proper SUICA depending on how long you travel
Its selling prices range from 1000 yen to 10,000 yen. Each SUICA contains 500-yen deposit, and when the card is returned, the deposit of 500 yen is returned along with any remaining amount. Otherwise you just keep it as souvenir or use when you come back to Japan again. While SUICA is issued by JR Railway, PASMO is another IC card, issued by subway/private railroad companies and both are workable to any type of public transportation system including bus services.

Convenient SUICA

SUICA can be used to buy mineral water, hot coffee
As e-money, these IC cards can be used to buy natural water, hot coffee, and other soft drink, some snacks in the vending machine or at KIOSK.

 

SUICA can be used on public transportation in Kyoto as well
When you visit Kyoto and Osaka, SUICA and PASMO can be used on the public transportation there.

Akio promptly met us at our hotel to take us to Tsukiji Fish Market Tour in the morning. We toured the inner and outer shops - it's a fast paced market place and was good to have someone take us there, navigate the way around since we didn't have much time. Go and see the market before they move!

Akio was very polite and punctual. However his English was not so good and he offered very little explanation of the sights we saw. It was difficult to understand what he was saying and difficult to have a conversation with him as he didn't listen very well. We wanted to go to the fish market which was not on his usual tour however he did take us but there was nothing to see as it had finishe...

Akio does not understand English as well as we had hoped and we did not get very much explanation about the places in Tokyo we visited. He was helpful in getting us from place to place by subway. For 80 years old, he does have a lot of energy.

Akio was very prompt on arrival in morning but we feel there wasn't any information given on places we visited. We back tracked a lot of the time and I felt he didn't really know where we were going, especially at tsujiku market and some train stations. English also not very good , overall very disappointed.

Akio is a well-informed tour guide. Definitely was a pleasure to have him take us around tokyo for the day. Definitely would recommend him to anyone considering a day tour around tokyo. Obviously can't see it all in one day but at least we hit some really good spots around the city.

Perfect vacation thanks to Akio. First thing I did on my first day in Tokyo was set off on foot / rail / bus with Akio. His easy manner and in depth knowledge of Japanese history and how it related to everything we saw left me feeling oriented and ready to explore on my own for the remainder of my visit. He has a great sense of humor and I highly recommend him.

We highly recommend our tour guide in Tokyo, Akio Horisaki. We had a great time despite many hours of walking. He is already 80 years old but he is agile. Such an inspiration for us to strive to reach such age healthy and happy. He said that the secret to a long and healthy life is to not worry and always be positive. Thank you very much, Akio Horisaki. We admire your strength, patience and dedica...
