I'll be flying into Narita this week to start a year-long teaching contract.
I read that "Suica is the rechargeable prepaid IC card of JR East, valid on virtually all trains, subways and buses in the Greater Tokyo region."
I'll be teaching at 3 schools, and I just want to double-check that my teaching locations still lie within what they class as the 'Greater Tokyo region'. (ie. I don't want to buy a Suica and load it up with a lot of cash only to find it's not valid.)
My schools are at:
1. Hachimanyama Station (this should be OK, pretty central)
2. Motosumiyoshi Station (Kanagawa)
3. Tsurugashima Station (Saitama)
So just checking a Suica is valid in Kanagawa and Saitama?
If anyone can offer help, thanks.
