How to Ride Trains

  1. Buy a ticket to your destination (if you have an IC card, you can go through the gates without a purchase)

  2. Line up on the platform and wait for your train, staying away from the tracks

  3. Passengers who are getting off get priority

  4. Be considerate of others while riding the train

Common Courtesy on the Train

  • Set your mobile phone to silent mode and do not talk on your phone
  • Do not talk loudly
  • Do not eat on the trains (although some trains allow food and beverages)


Some trains do not stop at all the stations, such as special express, express, and rapid trains. Check the train map to see where the train will stop.

How to Ride a Bicycle

  • As a rule, ride on the left side of the road in the same direction as car traffic
  • Do not ride while using a smartphone or while wearing earphones
  • Obey traffic laws

Using Bicycle Parking Lots

It is tempting to casually park your bicycle or scooter on the sidewalk and go to work, school or shopping, but these vehicles are extremely dangerous for the physically disabled, the elderly and children. There are bicycle parking lots near train stations in the city. Please be sure to park your bicycle or scooter in a designated location, such as a bicycle parking lot.
Bicycles and scooters that are left in public areas are removed and taken to a storage park. To reclaim your bicycle, you must pay a removal fee. Bicycles that are not claimed within two months after removal are disposed of.

Bicycle Storage Park

You can reclaim your bicycle at the storage park.
Hours: Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5:30 p.m.
Note: Except Sundays, national holidays and during the year-end/New Year’s holidays (December 29 through January 3).

Removal Fee

  • Bicycle: \3,000
  • Scooter (under 50 cc): \4,500

Note: To claim your bicycle, you must bring your personal seal (unregistered seals are also acceptable), some form of personal identification, the bicycle key, etc.
