Navigate the Kansai region like a local with the ease and convenience of the contactless ICOCA Card valid for trains, buses, metros and shopping
Visit any modern city these days and chances are there will be a local travel card making transportation, shopping and more even easier. It's the Octopus Card in Hong Kong, Easy Card in Taiwan, Suica Card in Tokyo, and for the Kansai region it's the ICOCA Card. A play on the phrase 'Iko ka' (行こか) meaning 'Shall we go?' in the local dialect, the card covers the major cities of the Kansai region including Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe. With one swipe of the contactless card, you can seamlessly hop aboard metros, buses, trains or even pay for your shopping. The card is handily preloaded with 1,500 yen credit, plus the 500 yen deposit so it's ready to use as soon as you pick it up.

fast response, reliable app... location to collect card is convenient
collection of card is rather simple. Using the card is convenient. One do not need to keep digging for coins for every trip. However, the deposit cannot be refund.
Very useful card! Had a little difficulty locating the office inside Osaka City Air Terminal (5-10 mins walk from Namba station), but the attendant at the office was very helpful.
