SUICA Card for Trians, Buses and Subway lines

Hi,

My family and I are traveling to Tokyo. We are getting the SUICA card in order to use the public transportation in Tokyo, but we wonder if the SUICA card will be accepted in all trains, buses, subway lines in Tokyo. Can someone please clarify if the SUICA card will be enough or if we should consider an additional option?

Thanks,
Israel

Hi Israel
Suica card works on all trains /subways in Tokyo I believe, and a majority of buses. It’s only if you want to take the shinkansen that you can’t use suica

Thanks,

I will be in Tokyo and probably go to Kioto, but I understand that in such case I will have to buy the shinkansen ticket.

Regards,
