Metro & Railway
Ticket price of almost every Japanese railway transportation is depends on distance you travel.
So before you buy a ticket with vending machine, you check how much it cost to your destination.
If you use train/subway often during you stay in Tokyo, we recommend you to buy Prepaid
Transportion card. You don't have to buy ticket each time you use train/subway.
There is two types of Prepaid Transportation card. One is named "Suica" (issued by Japan
Railway (JR)company), and the other is "Pasmo" (issued by alliance of private railway company).
There is almost no difference. Suica is available with Tokyo Metro or other private railway transportation,
and Pasmo is available with JR.
You may buy Prepaid Transportation card at primary station and charge with vending machine at every station.

Amazing in Japan
You find veding machine every corner in Tokyo. Most of them sell drink can. Not only coke,
but also coffee-can, tea-can, sports drink-can etc...
Some of vending machines sell cigarett. But today it's a bit difficult to buy cigarett with vending
machine. You need an ID card which is specialized to buy cigarett vending machine, called "Taspo".
Usually short-time-stayer cannot achieve this card.
Forget about it. You can buy cigarett anytime at convenience store.
