Refunds are only possible with valid tickets that have not yet been used. You will be charged a 170 yen handling fee (220 yen when transferring to/from other companies' trains) to process your refund.

Traveling Further than Your Fare Allows/Transferring Trains

  • If the fare on your ticket is less than that for the distance you traveled, you will be required to pay the difference.
  • Refunds are not given for tickets valued higher than the fare for the distance traveled.
  • Regular Tickets become invalid upon exiting the ticket gate.

When transferring between trains, be sure to use the orange ticket gates and to complete your transfer within 60 minutes. However, there are some stations where you can transfer without going through the ticket gates.
