About Child Fares

  • Child fares are half the price of adult fares. Amounts less than 10 yen are rounded up.
    ※Exceptions: In cases where children are eligible for bus-subway transfer discounts and they conduct fare adjustment, amounts less than 10 yen are rounded down. However, such exceptions cannot be processed by fare adjustment machines, so please ask at the station office when you get off the subway.
  • Children here refer to preschool children (1-5 years) and elementary school children. Children aged 12 years and above (junior high school students and above) are charged adult fares.
    ※Child fares apply until March 31 of the year in which the child graduates elementary school, and adult fares apply from April 1.
  • Infants less than one year old can ride for free. Up to two preschool children (1-5 years) can ride for free with each paying passenger.
