Fare Adjustment Machines

のりこし清算機

Fare adjustment machines (norikoshi seisanki) can be seen at all Japanese train stations and are a wonderful idea.

Fare Adjustment Machines

If you have bought the wrong ticket or decide to change your destination in mid-journey, you can pay any excess fare at one of these machines, rather than face an on-the-spot-fine and a criminal record as you might in the UK for example.

Just place your ticket in the slot and the machine calculates your excess fare. Pay the excess with your charge card, notes or coins and the machine issues you with a new ticket to pass the barrier. Simple, efficient...just the ticket.
