We provide our self guided and escorted travelers with these prepaid cards, and include enough money on the card to cover the transportation we have listed for you. You will probably find uses for your card not listed in your itinerary, and may need to add more money. Our staff in Japan will teach you how to add more money to your card as needed.
You can turn in the card and get a refund at the end of your tour, including a refund of the initial 500 Yen deposit and any remaining amount on the card. But a 220 Yen service fee will be subtracted from the refund. Refunds for the SUICA/ICOCA Cards can only be done at JR Stations.
