Before Riding the Train
Please purchase a ticket before riding the train. If you have an IC card (such as ICOCA or Suica), you don't need to purchase a ticket. Just make sure you have it charged beforehand and touch it to the ticket gate.
If you mistakenly purchase the wrong ticket, please tell a member of staff before riding the train.
