For this course, we recommend JR EAST’s Welcome Suica. Welcome Suica is a pass that makes exploring the Tokyo, Kanagawa, and the Greater Tokyo area more affordable and convenient; simply tap the card on the ticket gate, and hop aboard! Welcome Suica can be used on JR EAST trains, subways, and busses, so getting around is a cinch, and doesn’t require a ticket. It can even be used to make purchases at convenience stores and vending machines!
