Ive been purchasing these prepaid subway cards known locally as Yurika cards.Available in a range of prices from 1000yen to 5000yen you get an additional 600 yen credit when you purchase the 5000yen card.The cards can be purchased at various subway stations.
As Ive been travelling a lot recently and the average one way trip is around 260 yen I seem to be buying a card once every three weeks or so.
The station master logo on the cards incorporate one of the golden shachi or gold killer whale statues that grace the top of Nagoya Castle and are a symbol of the city.
