If you had a chance to check out the last post, you now know what a Pasmo Card is and what a Suica card is. If you didn’t have a chance to look at the previous post, no worries: you can click right here to go straight to it.
Even if you’re just visiting Japan, these cards can be super convenient in getting from place to place using the Japanese train system. I’ve decided to split the videos into two separate posts to keep them short and sweet. Let’s first take a look at just how easy it is to get a PASMO card.
The very first thing to do is find a PASMO Ticket/Commuter pass machine. Unfortunately not all ticket machines at a Japanese train station are created equal. Some are just used to purchase the standard, paper, train tickets, while others will allow you to buy a cards, commuter passes and so on. Once you’ve found the correct machine (I used the Tsukuba Station machine that had the pink marquis), here’s exactly what to do:
By thway, if you make any mistakes during the process, just remember that the red, “Cancel” button on the payment panel is your friend.
If seeing it done on video makes it easier for you, here you go
I hope this makes getting a PASMO card even easier for you. Next I’ll show you how to get a SUICA, which follows nearly the exact same procedure (except for one step).
Thank you so much for reading today.
See you tomorrow gang!
