What to expect

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.
