IC cards for easy transportation
For train and bus transport, most lines (including the local buses in Kashiwa) will accept the Suica or Pasmo IC Cards, which enable you to pay fares by simply tapping on a card reader. Either Suica or Pasmo cards can be purchased at most train stations. Some express trains will require the purchase of an additional express fare ticket beyond the base fare, so simply tapping your IC card will not be sufficient. Local Tobu buses from Kashiwa or Kashiwanoha Campus stations also accept the IC cards. You simply need to tap the card readers with the IC card twice: when getting and getting off the bus. If you pay by cash, pick up a paper slip with a number description on riding the bus, which helps you to look up your bus fare. Getting off the bus, look up the fare on the fare board and insert the money with the paper slip in a box next to the driver.
