  • If you don’t have one, please get it beforehand at Ticket Offices in major/most train stations that deals with mainly long-distance and reserved seat travel tickets. Although we hold a certain amount of ICC at the shop Kirari (FamilyMart) and/or the front desk of the Guest House, the quantity is presumably limited.

  • ICC charge machines are installed at the entrance of the cafeteria building.
  • You can’t charge the ICCs at the automated cashiers. So please go to the entrance to charge it as necessary.
  • When you don’t need your ICC anymore and want to get the deposit back, please go to your nearest station (e.g. Aioi).In case of ICOCA: A handling fee 220 yen will be deducted from the amount of money remaining on the card. You can get the full deposit of 500 yen back if you return the card empty.
