    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!
  • Carlo 18 Feb 2019
    The redemption area is quite far from the arrival area. Very convenient to use in all subways, convenient stores and most shops.
  • Yoon San 8 Feb 2019
    Simple and easy cash substitute, a smart card we used for tram/Sapporo StreetCar rides and simple purchases
  • Alvin Homer 7 Feb 2019
    Arrived via a domestic flight so I had to walk all the way to the International Arrivals area to claim the cards. It was a 10-15min walk so consider this if you are pressed with time.
  • Nora 6 Feb 2019
    Good choice if you are not sure which card you need. It covers almost all lines, but for kid better buy IC Card on the spot since it is half price discount when Child's ID is presented.
  • MASTURA BINTI 6 Feb 2019

  • Angelique 23 Jan 2019
    Very convenient to use around Hokkaido. A bit of a downside is that Easygo counter at the arrival area of New Chitose International Airport opens at 0930H when our flight’s arrival is at 0700H. We had to go back to the airport just to redeem the kitaca cards.
