Top 25 Easy Day Trips from Tokyo

Hi. I read your article on Top 25 Easy Day Trips from Tokyo. All trips are reachable by train from Tokyo. I have Suica Card purchased from Narita Airport. I would like to know if I can use Suica Card to board the trains for all the 25 recommended day trips.

Hi Cyn,
You can use your Suica card on all trains, trams and monorails in the Kanto area. The only thing to be aware of is the Shinkansen and Limited Express trains. For these, you will also need to buy a limited express ticket (tokkyu-ken). So if you catch the Shinkansen with your Suica, you will have to touch the Suica and then insert the express ticket into the gate.
Hope that helps!
Greg

Dear Greg,

Thanks so much for your reply. Good to have Suica.

Regards,
Cynthia
