PiTaPa is a smart card-based payment system that is popular in the Kansai Region of Japan (its effective usage area actually spans from Okayama Prefecture in the west to Shizuoka Prefecture in the east). It is mainly used for train and bus fares, but is also accepted at PiTaPa merchants throughout the country. In addition, it can be used as a payment method for many transactions, including payments at convenience stores, vending machines, cafes and restaurants, hotels, car rental companies, hair salons, parking garages, storage lockers, etc.
"Shop de Points" (Points Through Shopping) are earned when PiTaPa is used for payment. Customers can set up their PiTaPa Cards so that accrued points will be automatically used toward public transportation fares or be automatically redeemed for miles.
