Q.

Name 4 ways that you can use your Suica or Pasmo card, other than for transportation.

A.

Suica & Pasmo cards are primarily used for transportation on trains, buses, and taxis. But there are other ways to use your Suica/Pasmo card for quick payments. Here are 4 other common ways:

  • Station vending machines

  • Convenience stores

  • Drug stores

  • Station lockers

You might also see Suica/Pasmo payments available at select shops, primarily within stations.


You can buy Suica/Pasmo at the station or at the “midori no madoguchi”. If you want to check your balance, you can simply use the ticket machine, and it can also be set to auto-charge so you don’t have to line up and recharge every time you run out of money.

How’d you do…can you think of any others?
