【Notice)】Cafeteria Payment System Has Been Changed.

To SPring-8/SACLA users,

As we have announced by the User Information website, the payment system at the cafeteria has been changed from August 2020.
Since transportation IC Cards* (ICCs) are now introduced, we can’t use your previous prepaid card anymore.
*Integrated circuit card or so-called SmartCard

●Cash, credit card, traveler’s check, and previous prepaid card for the cafeteria are all unacceptable.
●If you don’t have any IC card yet, you can buy the ICOCA card for 2,000 yen (1,500 yen charge and 500 yen deposit included) at the front desk of the Guest House.
●ICC charge machine is newly installed at the entrance of the cafeteria.
●When you make a payment, the self-register won’t print the receipt.
●You can still get a refund on your previous prepaid card by using its payment adjustment machine in the cafeteria.
●When you don’t need your ICC anymore and want to get the deposit back, please go to your nearest station (e.g. Aioi JR Station).

In case of ICOCA
You can get the full deposit of 500 yen back if you return the card empty. Otherwise a handling fee of 220 yen will be deducted from the amount of money remaining on the card.
