On many Japanese railways,FareWill sell tickets in advance (Giving out) To collect, passengers have a system that allows passengers to board within the effective range of the purchased ticket. Under the system, a ticket (unused) that has been released is inspected at the start of boarding, and it is changed to an already used (starting to use) ticket. Specifically, there are scissors/imprints by staff, and printing/opening by machines.

Also, at the automatic ticket gates that became popular at the same time, when the ticket was inserted into the ticket gate, a hole was made in the ticket face. In either case, marking the ticket with ticket scissors or the like to indicate that it has been used (used) is called "nursing scissors". As a general rule, you will collect your tickets when you enter.

Although it is a minority, depending on the operator/station, the ticket gates at the entrance may be omitted and only the ticket collection and fare collection at the time of entry may be omitted, or the ticket collection and fare collection at the entrance may occur.

As mentioned earlier, in the railways of European countriesplatformIn many cases, there is no ticket gate to go to the station[2].. If the date is not printed on the ticket, a system is generally used in which the customer stamps the date with a stamping machine installed at the station.[2]..

Instead of the ticket gate in the car, the crew member checks the reserved seat reservation information of the mobile terminal and the seating status of the passenger, and if they match, presumes that the passenger is a normal passenger and passes through. Only when the passenger is seated in a seat for which a designated ticket has not been issued, do the ticket gates in the car. HoweverTokai passenger railwayDirectly from (JR Tokai)Shinonoi LineLimited expressWide view shinano"Is not supported by the information terminal, so the ticket gate is unconditionally used. In the "Super View Odoriko" limited express, which has reserved seats for all cars, the staff checks the reserved seat limited express ticket after the door is cut to limit the entrance of the vehicle. In the limited express trains that have been introduced in recent years, the same lamps as those of ordinary train green cars are mounted on the ceiling, and the color of the lamps is changed according to the status of reserved seat release.

Similarly,Kinki Nippon Railway OfLimited express[Annotation 5],Keisei Electric Railwayof"Skyliner"Tobu RailwayMain line system,Odakyu romance car,Nankai Electric Railway,Nagoya Railway[7]Even in the case of limited express trains, the reservation status of reserved seats is transmitted to the conductor's mobile terminal, which simplifies ticket reservations for passengers seated in seats that are not reserved. This is why "you can see that you do not have a designated ticket in one shot". Passengers are generally well-received, such as "not disturbing sleep," so there is widespread movement to omit or simplify ticket gates inside the car.

Shikoku Passenger RailwayIn the limited express trains of (JR Shikoku), in addition to the regular ticket gates for passengers from the midway station, it also serves as a ticket gate for passengers from the station on the way to the end point (eg Kojima-Okayama, Sakaide-Takamatsu, Imabari-Iyo Hojo -) Between Matsuyama, Tosa Yamada-Subsequent-Kochi) to collect free seat limited express tickets for passengers in free seats. In addition, on some limited express trains, passengers with reserved seats that meet certain conditions omit the ticket gates.

Similar to JR East and JR West, mobile terminals were introduced in JR Tokai, and although they were checking using those mobile terminals, it was negative to completely abolish the ticket gates inside the car. In addition to the mobile terminal, the conductor has a card that describes the seating status of each vehicle.Passengers who sit in unchecked seats wicket their tickets and after completion check their seat numbers and write down which station they will take.

  • The fact that JR Tokai has continued to use ticket gates in the train is also due to the characteristics of the line and train users. Tokaido ShinkansenTomeisaka 3 metropolitan areasThe main reason for passenger flow is the movement of passengers, and it is considered that the ticket gate inside the car could not be abolished for the following reasons.[8].
  1. About 7% of passengersBusinessThe number is overwhelmingly large for the purpose, and passengers are frequently replaced. In addition, since the service interval is short, if you arrive at the station earlier than planned even if you have a reserved seat ticket, you can board the preceding train without performing the train change procedure, etc. Sit in a reserved seat that you are willing to buy a ticket, or move to another seat if you are seated on the planned train (moving to the side of the window or aisle, or to a seat with no other passengers next to you) There are many acts such as doing, etc., and you will miss the reserved seat fee unless you pay the ticket in the car.
  2. Full moon,Japan Rail PassSuch asHopeThere are many passengers who accidentally board Nozomi with a planned ticket that cannot be used, and it is necessary to collect the ticket and limited express ticket fees from that passenger.
  3. terrorismThere is also the aspect of patrol inside the car as a measure.

ButExpress bookingSince the increase in the number of users and the improvement of the system has made it possible to omit the ticket gates inside the train, JR Tokai also intends to abolish the ticket gates for reserved seats as a rule from the timetable revision on March 2016, 3.

When introducing an automatic ticket gate in the Kinki area, mobilize employees from all JR West branch offices to collect materials such as cost-effectiveness,Urban networkAll trains running inside the train were ticket gates for all passengers at all stops between stations. During this period, passengers received ticket gates at each station from boarding to getting off.

At some railway operators' stations that do not have personnel at the ticket gates, there is a case in which this trouble was omitted by marking the ticket face as "no scissors". In addition, even when a clerk may still allow the admission just by checking the ticket, such as a commuter pass at the time of rush hour, the entry is marked as "skipping scissors omitted" (Seibu Tamagawa LineSuch).

With the rationalization and the introduction of automatic ticket gates since the 1990s, the entrance date and station name are indicated from the ticket gate scissors.Wicket stampHas been changed to. If you enter from a station that does not have an automatic ticket gate and enter from a station that has an automatic ticket gate, if you insert the ticket gate scissors at the time of entry, the automatic ticket gate may get stuck at the time of entry, which is not preferable from the aspect of maintenance. It has been changed to a ticket gate, but this is not the case on routes where automatic ticket gates are not introduced. Even at the ticket gates in the car, the ticket scissors have changed to stamps with the date and other information.
