* 3 How to obtain stamps *
Download the “Ekitag” app and use the “NFC tags” installed at stations and fun trains.
When you touch your smartphone, a stamp will be stamped in the stamp book for each route.

*NFC (Near field)
(near field communication) is a technology that allows devices equipped with NFC to communicate by simply bringing them close together.
*Station stamps from stations served by multiple lines will be stamped on multiple stamp books.
*Please tap the “i” mark listed in the stamp book in the app to check the locations where “NFC tags” are installed at each station and the times when they can be obtained.
*You may not be able to obtain a stamp on the train due to radio reception conditions such as in tunnels, so please obtain stamps in sections with good radio reception.
