"Totally Essential for Japan"

Value for money: 5/5
Ease of use: 5/5
Suitability: 5/5

This card is totally essential for Japan. It not only works on trains, metro, some buses but also on vending machines and some shop counters at point of sale. It is extremely useful and reduces the need for small change to purchase tickets. The balance when you buy the card is enough to get you to Tokyo or the nearest major station but you will need to top up the balance of the card when in Japan as it is insufficient for even three days of touring. I highly recommend this product and company.

Simplicity! Was able to purchase two cards for myself and wife before leaving home.After clearing customs at Haneda airport swiped card at barrier and boarded train while everyone else was exchanging money for yen to purchase train tickets.Easy to use and saves time and money.Have kept cards (good for ten years!) as I love Tokyo and it's people and hope to come back soon.

Having this ready and 'charged' on arrival was terrific. Got us in to the city from Narita and was not hard to top up!

"suica pass"

Value for money: 2/5
Ease of use: 5/5
Suitability: 5/5

Extremely helpful pass that works like a Myki card (Melb) or Oyster card (London). Basically use it on (almost) any form of transport and top up when you need to. Most of the locals use it. Be aware that you can buy this card at any JR station for refundable 500 yen. Suica pass can be used in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, so it's very useful. Occasionally there are lines / services that are not covered but then just go old school and buy a ticket.

"Essential for subway travel in Japan, made it stress free and easy."

We arrived at Haneda Airport and caught the Monorail into Tokyo - the quickest and cheapest way to go. Pulled out our Suica card and tapped the turnstile straight into station. No mucking around or purchasing tickets - best way to travel. Used our cards constantly in Tokyo and Kyoto. Was so glad we organised them beforehand.
