When we tour around Tokyo by
railroad, we must buy the tickets
from vending machine at the station.
Of course, most stations have ticket offices.
But they are for buying the long-distance tickets, seat resevation ticket or special tickets.
If you want to buy short-distance tickets there, the clerk in the office probably encourage you to buy at the vending machine.
So learn how to buy the ticket in Tokyo.
All ticket wickets in Tokyo have been automated.
Insert your ticket into a automatic ticket gate, and the gate opens.
Then pass through the gate.
Take extra care not to leave your ticket on the gate !
When you tour about Tokyo within a short period of time, it is bother to buy the tickets each time.
So most railroad companies sell various special discount tickets that
allow unlimited travel for a set period.
Some tickets are usable only in the lines of the railroad, and some are available in a few railroads.
We can generally buy these tickets at the ticket office of the station.
And we can buy the following tickets at any time. (The unit of fare is yen.)
They sometimes sell other seasonal tickets. With luck, you may get it.
