Suica card amount credit


Hopefully an easy question today, i will be getting a suica card upon my arrival in Tokyo on Monday, just a weeks stay, can anyone suggest an amount i should put on the card, i dont mind putting the full amount on straight away to save doing it again every other day. I intend to be using the subways a lot to explore all the different neighbourhoods and areas.

Thank You in advance


3,000yen is plenty for a week. You can also get it fully refunded at the end of your trip using the charging machines.

Thanks Greg for the swift reply, 3000 yen it is
