Help me with travel please.

I'm visiting Tokyo next week and will be arriving at Haneda. I know that the monorail goes straight to Minato but what card will I need to ride the monorail. I have researched a bit and found Suica/Pasmo but can they be used on the Monorail? Once I'm in Tokyo will the Suica/Pasmo be sufficient to get me round all the different districts on the underground? Can I buy the Suica/Pasmo at Haneda?

Thanks

PASMO/SUICA woks like the Oyster Card in London (or, it's the other way around; Oyster Card is based on PASMO/SUICA technology). You can use both cards interchangeably and on Tokyo Monorail among other dozens of underground and overground lines in and around Tokyo (I don't know any line that can't be taken in Kanto Region with those cards - perhaps some might exist). SUICA has a penguin mark on it, and Monorail SUICA has a cute monorail mark on it.

You can get PASMO in Haneda from Keikyu Railway which also happens to connect Minato Ward with Haneda Airport International Terminal, and SUICA from Tokyo Monorail. The more important issue is where you are heading to in the large and wide Minato Ward.

Apparently, you can't use it for Ueno Zoo Monorail, Odaiba Rainbow Bus, Choshi Electric Railway, Nagareyama Railway, Chichibu Railway, Hitachinaka Kaihin Railway, Kominato Railway, and Isumi Railway. So, not everywhere. :-)
