  • 武蔵境からのJR乗車券(定期券、武蔵境からの特急・新幹線乗車券、回数券など)
  • スイカパスモ
  • 西武多摩川線のりかえきっぷ(JR中央線の駅なら大体売っている)
  • 武蔵境からの西武乗車券(回数券、定期券など)

(出口へ)

  • 西武の乗車券のみ
  • 清算・処理が必要なスイカ・パスモ

⇒右の出口改札を出て、左隣のJRの駅へ

  • JRの乗車券のみ
  • 清算・処理が必要なスイカ・パスモ(チャージは構内のチャージ機で可能)

⇒南口改札を出て、右隣の西武の駅へ

階段・エスカレーターが多いので、時間に余裕を持って出かけた方がよさそうです。

 

JR/Seibu Transfer Gate at Musashi-Sakai

Need to have tickets or cards for two operators: JR and Seibu. If you need to adjust the fares, or if your card needs to be taken care of, you need to go to the exit gate with station staffs.

 

from Seibu-Tamagawa Line to JR:

  • Tickets: JR Transfer Tickets are available at all stations (Press "English" sign on ticket machines, then press "Transfer Tickets"). If you use more then one ticket to JR Lines, put them all at once at the transfer gate.
  • Cards: SUICA and PASMO cards can be used for all most all lines and operators in and around Tokyo. So, just place the card once on the gate (if you have enough fare stored in your card). Fare storing machine is on the right hand side of tranfer gate. To fix problems, go to the staff office.
  • Without tickets or cards to JR Lines: Cannot use the transfer gate. Go through the exit gate, and turn left as soon as you're outside. Buy ticket at JR's station.

from JR to Seibu-Tamagawa Line:

  • Tickets: Tickets to Seibu-Tamagawa Line are available at some JR-Chuo Line stations (Press "English" sign on ticket machines, then press "Transfer Tickets").  If you use more then one ticket to Seibu-Tamagawa Line, put them all at once at the transfer gate.
  • Cards: Place the card once on the gate (if you have enough fare stored in your card). If you need to add fare in your card or fix problems, you need to go to the South Exit (Minami-Guchi).
  • Without tickets or cards to Seibu-Tamagawa Line: Cannot use the transfer gate. Go through South Exit gate (Minami-Guchi), and turn right. Buy ticket at Seibu's Station.

券売機・改札口/Gates

沿線で大きな行事が行われる日は(競艇、センター試験、外国語大学入試、警察学校入試など)券売機が混雑します余裕を持ってお出かけください。

多摩川線は、武蔵境駅を除き全駅人員改札です。

/Automatic ticket gates are only at Musashisakai. Gates at other stations only have SUICA/PASMO panels, and desks with station staffs.

また、多摩川線全駅の券売機でSUICA・PASMOのチャージができますが、混雑を避けるため、JR武蔵境駅など他の改札を利用した方がよさそうです。

また、各駅構内に設置してあるピンクのチャージ機は、千円札しか使えません。(券売機では全ての貨幣が使えます)

/SUICA and PASMO fare storing machine inside the stations can only take 1,000yen bills. To use other bills, go to staff desks, or use ticket vendors before entering the gates.

運行は12分間隔

単線なので、一本逃すと次の電車は12分後の発車になります。

/Trains leave every 12 minutes (except in the early morning and late night).

回数券/for frequent users

全駅の券売機・窓口で、普通回数券(10枚分の値段で11枚)、土日休回数券(土日祝日のみ使用可。10枚分の値段で14枚。)、時差回数券(平日は10時〜16時に使用可。10枚分の値段で12枚。)の3種類を販売していますが、販売駅発着の回数券しか買うことが出来ません。

期限は3ヶ月なので、3ヶ月に十数回以上使う場合にお得です。

If you take the line frequently, discount tickets called "Kaisu-Ken"can be useful. Price is 10 times of regular fare. Available through 3 months since purchase.

They sell them in 3 types: "Futsu (regular)"; set of 11 tickets (can be used anytime), "Do-Nichi-Kyu (Sat. Sundays and holidays)"; set of 14 tickets (can be used only on weekends and holidays), "Jisa (non-rush hour)"; set of 12 tickets (can be used at 10am-16pm on weekdays and anytime on weekends and holidays).

Available at ticket machines. Choose which station to which you wish to use them when buying.

定期券/if you use everyday

武蔵境駅でのみ販売されています。

多摩川線を使って武蔵境へ定期券を買いに行く場合は、窓口でその旨を伝え、「定期券販売乗車券」を購入します。武蔵境に着いたら、窓口でその乗車券を出せば、武蔵境までの運賃を返してもらえます

If you use the line almost everyday, you might want to consider having a rail pass called "Teiki-Ken". It has the highest discount of all services, and since the ticket can be used as many times you want during the certain period, you won't need to buy tickets for a while.

The pass is sold for periods of 1, 3, or 6 months. Choose which station to which you'll use it when buying (you can choose all most any station of JR and Tokyo Metro as destination!). Also, special prices will be applied for students (Tsuugaku).

Available only at Musashi-Sakai. If you go there to buy "Teiki-Ken", ask a staff at your nearest Seibu-Tamagawa Line station. Pay the fare to Musashi-Sakai, and he'll give you a special ticket. Once you get there (the Seibu station at Musashi-Sakai, not the JR station), give it away at the desk. They'll pay you back the fare you paid.

If you're an adult, you can use the white ticket vendor to buy it at the exit of Musashi-Sakai, but as for students and children, must buy it at the staff desk since you need to show them an ID.

知られているよーで意外と知られていない情報を載せます。

パスモスイカの違い

SUICA and PASMO

  • 機能・使い方は、販売元の会社が違うだけで全く同じ。
  • 首都圏内なら、使える路線・店はほぼ同じ。(どちらもJR・私鉄・都営・メトロ各線、一部の路線バス・コンビニなどの店舗で使える。)⇒両方持つ必要はない
  • スイカは、首都圏内に加え、JR東日本圏内(例えば仙台)、JR西日本圏内(例えば大阪)でも使える
  • スイカはJR各駅の券売機や窓口、パスモは私鉄・地下鉄各駅の券売機や窓口で購入できる。
  • 1秒間、パネルに触れる(かざす)だけ。⇒強く叩きつけても意味なし。逆に1秒未満で離すとエラーが出る
  • 他のICカードと重ねてタッチしちゃダメ。⇒2枚以上のパスモ・スイカ・その他IC系カード(一部の運転免許証、タスポなど)を重ねたり、一緒にサイフに入れた状態での使用はできない。
  • エラーが出にくいチャージの仕方⇒券売機の「PASMO」ボタンを押す(JRの駅はなし)、「チャージ」を選ぶ(そのままにいくことも)、チャージする金額を選ぶ、現金を入れる
  • チャージはスイカ用チャージ機/券売機でも、パスモ用チャージ機/券売機でもできる。
  • Differences between SUICA and PASMO cards are only the companies that sell them. They both can be used for all most all train and bus lines, or some shops and restaurants in and around Tokyo. As for SUICA, can be used in other areas as well (Sendai, Osaka, etc.). Of course, you can add the fare on any machine if it says either SUICA or PASMO.
  • You need to pay \500 when purchasing a card, but they'll pay you back the \500 when you're not using it any more, and return it at the stations. Purchase and return for SUICA is only available at stations of JR Lines, as for PASMO, stations for companies other than the JR.
  • To store fare into your card (we call it "Charge" in strange Japanese), use ticket vendors: 1. Press "English" on the top-right side on the screen, 2. Press "PASMO"(on lines other than JR), "Charge"(on JR lines), 3. Insert your card, 4. Choose the amount you wish to add (\1,000 to \20,000), 5. Put bills or coins.   If you need to do this inside the stations, use fare storing machines or fare adjustment machines.
  • You cannot use more than one card at once, and for more than one person at once. If you place 2 cards on the panel, you'll need to try again with one card.
  • Place your card gently on the panel for one second, not less.

Q.How many lines are there in Tokyo?

In Tokyo, there are roughly 3 types of train lines to make things easier:

JR lines (Japan Railway)

Lines operated by Japan Railway Group (in Tokyo, East Japan Railway Co. Ltd.).  It used be one of the governmental sectors, but has been privatised to become one of the largest railway companies in Japan. These lines include: JR Chuo Line, JR Yamanote Line, JR Tokaido Line, and the famous Shinkansens (the bullet trains).

private lines ("Shitetsu")

The major lines operated by private companies other than the JR, including Seibu, Keio, Odakyu, or Tobu

subway lines

There are two subway operators in Tokyo; Tokyo Metro and Toei (Tokyo Metropolitan Government Tranportations Bureau).

The JR has the lines for middle or long distance, which leads to the suburbs, neighbouring prefectures, and eventually to the other parts of Japan.

Other private railway lines (or so-called "Shitetsu") run on areas without JR lines, to connect their terminals in downtown with suburbs.

Subway lines run within downtown area of Tokyo, especially inside the loop-shaped JR Yamanote line. Some of them have direct service that go through JR and private lines.

Here's the map for train lines in and around Tokyo. (some smaller stations are not shown in this map)

 

Q.How do I take the trains?

Just as trains in other countries, you'll take four steps: A. Buy tickets, B. Pass the ticket gate, C. Take trains, D. Exit the ticket gate. Here, I'll explain to you the every step of your way.

1. Check the route you'll take and the amount of fare you need to pay.

 Unfortunately, there are a very few route maps or fare charts, or even time tables written in English in many stations. And all most no staffs  there speak English. So, you should check these pieces of information before leaving.

 Use this site to check for your route and fare. It's a train search engine in English. (For other areas of Japan, use this site.)

 Also, you'll need a route map to look for: (JR, subways, all major lines & operators).

2. Buy tickets (If you have SUICA or PASMO cards with enough fare stored, skip to the next step)

 At the station, use ticket vending machines to buy your ticket.

 First, look for the button or sign saying "English". As for the machines with electronic screen, the button may be on the edge of the screen. Then, the buttons and signs on the machine will turn into English.

 Second, choose the fare you need to pay. You may be unable to pay all the way to your destination. Try to choose the station as far as you can on the same operator  (railway company) on the way. Or, try pressing "Transfer Tickets" to look for your the lines you're changing to.

 Third, toss coins and/or insert the bills. The ticket will come out with your change.

 For SUICA/PASMO card users (explained below), if you're not sure whether you have enough fare recorded in your card or not, press "English" and  then press either "Charge" or "PASMO" on the ticket vending machine. Then, insert your card. The amount of your fare will appear on the  screen. To add the fare, choose the amount. To finish, press red cancel button.

3. Look at the signs, and go to your platform

 Many signs on the walls or the ceiling have English translation on them. Look carefully to find the right platform.

 Directions of the trains are usually written as "For XX (station name)". Look at the route map, and see if the train coming to the platform  goes to your direction.

 At platforms, there should be some bulletin boards that tell you the departure time and the destination of the trains approaching. The signs  should turn Japanese and English from time to time.

 Some lines have more than one type of trains, such as Rapid, Express, or Local. Trains other than Local may skip some stations on the way,  so check for the fastest train that stops at your desination. You can also change to Local train after taking faster trains on your way.

4. On the train

 Some trains have English public announcement, or bulletin boards with English message (usually above the doors). If not, look at your route  map, or look at the signs on the station platform through the window to know where you are.

 As for manners on the train, stand clear of the doors if you could not find any seats. If you have to stand close to the doors, get out of the  train once to let people exit the door to the stations. Sit close to each other so that more people can take seats. Eating and drinking on the  train are usually considered rude.

 Also, try to give away seats to old people or people in need of priority seats. Some cars on some lines will become for ladies only on rush  hours.

5. After getting off

 If you're changing to other lines, look for the signs to find the right platform. If you're also changing the operators, you need to go through  designated "transfer gates" or go through exit once.

 If it's your destination, then look for the exit. If there are a few exits, there should also be maps or lists of neibouring places that tell you the right exit.

 At many exits, ticket adjusting machines are near the ticket gates. If you haven't paid enough to get off at the station, use the machines to adjust the fare.  At exits without adjusting machines, or when you get an error at the gates even though you have paid enough, go to the desk with staffs inside to ask for help. This list might be helpful to communicate with them

 

Q.What are SUICA and PASMO?

These are the types of pre-paid fare cards available in the Kanto region (in and around Tokyo).

You can store the fare for the amount of \1,000 to \20,000 in these plastic cards, and use as many times as you wish until you use up the amount. Once you used it up, restore the fare in the same card.

SUICA and PASMO work roughly the same, and both can be used on all most all train & subway lines, buses, and in some shops in the Kanto region. But there are slight differences between them:

 SUICA: Sold and managed by the JR. It can be used not only in the Kanto region, but also on the JR lines in other areas: for example, Sendai, Niigata, Hokkaido (Sapporo), Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto), Hiroshima.

 PASMO: Sold and managed by the group of private railways & subways. It can be used only in the Kanto region.

So, if you'd like to use it in other parts of Japan, SUICA is the right choice. It's available only at the JR stations.

If you only use it in Tokyo and its neighbours, you can choose from the two. PASMO is only available at stations for private railways.

Notice: If you'd like to print a commuter pass (or "Teiki-ken", explained below) on your card, get SUICA for JR lines, or PASMO for private lines. If you'd like to use some mobile phones as a pre-paid card("Mobile SUICA"), get a SUICA.

How to get a card: Use designated ticket vending machines (blue machines at JR stations(SUICA), all most any machines at private railways(PASMO)).  1. Press "English" on the machines (and "PASMO" at private railways & subways),  2. Choose from: My SUICA/Personal User PASMO with your name printed on the card, or SUICA/General User PASMO without your name on it,  3. Choose the amount of fare to add into your card (including \500 deposit: to be paid back when you return your card to the stations),  4. Insert bills or toss coins.

How to restore the fare into your card ("Charge"): Use ticket vending machines. 1. Press "English", 2. Press "Charge" at JR stations or "PASMO" at private railways & subways, 3. Insert your card, 4. Choose the amount of fare, 5. Insert bills or toss coins.

How to use the card at ticket gates: Place your card on a blue lighted panel on the gates for one second.  If the panel turns red, that means you have some errors. Try placing it once more, and if it turns red again, ask the station staffs for help.  Possible problems are: you don't have enough fare in your card, or you haven't placed your card correctly at the gates of other stations.

How to return your card to the railway: When you're not going to use the card anymore, return it to the station (or, if you're coming back to Japan sometime in the future, take it with you).  You can return SUICA to JR stations, and PASMO to private railways & subways.  They'll pay you back the deposit (\500) and the fare left in your card.  Charges may apply.

 

Q. Do I need to buy tickets everytime I change the lines?

The answer is NO. You'll usually need to buy tickets everytime you change the operators (railway companies).

For example, you can buy a ticket easily through several lines operated by the JR, but may need to buy another when changing to lines operated by Seibu Railway.

You can buy a ticket through two operators by buying Transfer Tickets ("Norikae-Kippu"). At the ticket vending machines, press "English" on the screen, and then press "Transfer Tickets".

But if you don't want to buy tickets everytime changing the operators, buy SUICA or PASMO cards.  These pre-paid cards with computer chips inside can be used for almost any lines and operators in and around Tokyo. All you need to do is to add fares (\1,000 to \20,000) at ticket vending machines, and pass the ticket gates by placing it on the reading panel. When you used up the fares, just add it again to use more (for more, read here or go to these websites: SUICA, PASMO).

 

Q. Do I need to change trains everytime I change the lines?

Not always. Some trains go through several lines for passengers' convenience.

For example, some Keio Line trains go through Toei-Shinjuku subway line, and some JR-Chuo Line trains go through Tokyo Metro-Tozai subway line.

To know if the train is going through other lines, check the destination of the train. If it's going to the station on the different line, it means it's going to change the lines somewhere.

Or, to look for the best route or to check the fare for your destination, use this site in English.

 

Q. Do they have discounts for frequent users?

If you leave from the same station to go to the same destination frequently, yes.  Typical discount tickets for the frequent users are: "Teiki-Ken" and "Kaisu-Ken".

"Teiki-Ken"

If you take trains almost everyday (to your office or to your school, for example), then this is the right choice.

"Teiki-Ken" is a rail pass that can be re-used for a certain period, within the certain route. You can choose the period from a month, 3 months, or 6 months, and it has the highest discount rate of all services.  You can use this pass as many times as you wish in the period you choose, and you can take trains or get off at any stations within the route.

There are two types: "Tsuukin" for adults, "Tsuugaku" for students (including college students). The latter has the higher discount rate.

Adult passes are available at staff desks at many stations, and designated ticket vending machines at some stations.  As for students, only available at staff desks since you need to show them an ID that proves you're a student.

When you buy, you'll choose the both ends of the route, and the lines you take..  Of course, you can use it on the way back, or when you get off at other stations within the route. You can go through several lines and operators to buy it as one pass.

The pass can be purchased separately as a ticket (bigger than the regular tickets), or can be printed on SUICA or PASMO cards.

When you get off at the station that is out of the route you choosed, you'll need to pay extra fare from the closest station within the route.

"Kaisu-Ken"

If you use once a week or more but not almost everyday, this is the right choice.

"Kaisu-Ken" is a set of 11 to 14 tickets for the certain route. It's available for 3 months, and sold as 10 times of the regular fare.

You can get it at most of the ticket vending machines. Select the station you're leaving and the station you're getting off.  Use one ticket every time just like a regular ticket.

JR lines and subways only sell sets of 11 tickets, but as for private lines, you can also choose:  sets of 12 tickets (available through 11am-16pm on weekdays, anytime on weekends and holidays), sets of 14 tickets (available only on weekends and holidays).

You cannot buy it as one set through different operators. If you use several railways to your destination, you need to buy it respectively at each operator.

 

Q. Are long-distance tickets different from regular ones?

If you use toll-express, yes.  You'll need two types of tickets to take long-distance express trains (including the Shinkansen).

One of them is called "Jyosya-Ken", which includes the regular fare.  The second one is called "Tokkyu-Ken", which includes service fares for long-distance exppresses.

Both are available at designated station desks and ticket vending machines.  Of course, they're only available at stations of operator that runs the express. For example, the Shinkansen tickets are only availble at the JR stations.  As for the JR, the staff desks with green sign (Midori-No-Madoguchi) are the places to buy.

Or, you can buy it online on operators' websites (For example: JR).

When getting "Jyosya-Ken" for the regular fare, choose the closest station of the operator that runs the express. For example, when you leave Mitaka to take Shinkansen at Tokyo, buy it from Mitaka. You cannot choose the stations of other operators.

"Tokkyu-Ken" for service fares only applies from the station where you take the express (in the example, you'll buy it from Tokyo). Choose from Reserved Seats or Non-Reserved Seats.

As for the JR, they have discount for passengers leaving from, or arriving at Tokyo Downtown area.  If you leave from/go to station inside the designated metropolitan area using the JR conventional trains, you don't need to pay the fare within the area.  For example, if you leave from Shinjuku to take the Shinkansen at Tokyo, you don't need to pay between Shinjuku and Tokyo since Shinjuku is in the downtown area.  Or, if you're leaving from Mitaka, you're only paying from Mitaka to the edge of downtown area (Nishi-Ogikubo).  About the downtown area, click here.

Or, get JR's "Rail Pass", the discount tickets available only for people from overseas. (more)
