    It's a good experience for me to join klook. This is my first time go to Hokkaido Japan and using this Kitaca card for transportation. This Kitaca card can be collect at Easy Go counter which located at New Chitose Airport. This kitaca card can use for train and bus service. It just like a top up card. It can be refund after finish using if still have balance of credit but it will deduct ¥220 Yen for handling fee.

    I recently took advantage of a seven day Hokkaido rail pass (only available to international visitors) and rode most of the train lines on Hokkaido island. The trains are spotless and run on time. They are generally well used. Much of the equipment and operating style is like what once existed in Australian and other countries.

    Very easy pickup as soon as you step out of the gates. The staff speaks English and is very helpful. I’m glad I ordered this card online before arriving. It was so easy to use all across Hokkaido. It’s a must have!
