Which IC card is used in Akita area 2019/4/5 19:46
Hello,
My daughter will be spending 2 months in Akita in a student exchange program. Can you let me know which IC card is used for public transport in this area.

None (except for the Shinkansen). Paper tickets only.

Akita is not big urban city, so out of such IC card area,
she should buy school commuter pass(通学定期券 tuugaku teiki-ken) of train, bus, or train and bus both.

Large parts of the country do not operate IC cards, not just Akita - they are a relatively recent introduction.
