1. Re: where to return SUICA/PASMO card?

"Suica cards issued by JR East Japan can be returned only at JR East stations. Suica cards issued by the Tokyo Monorail or elsewhere cannot be returned to JR East. Refer to the issuing company for further details on how to return them.

When the card is returned, the deposit of 500 yen is returned along with any remaining amount.

There is a charge of 220 yen to return a Suica card, which is deducted from the total. For refunds, a fee of 220 yen is subtracted from the total (a result of less than zero is considered zero), and then the initial 500 yen deposit is added."

So when I travel to Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima, can I continue to use the Suica there? I understand that I can use it for trains and subways in those places, but can I also reload the card at machines in those centers? And can I return it for my refund and unused credit at the stations in the Kyoto/Osaka/Hiroshima areas? (as I will not be returning to Tokyo). Thanks!

You can use Suica in Kansai. However, you can't return Suica in Kansai region.

You might consider returning Suica in Tokyo before heading to Kansai region. Pick up a ICOCA card in Kansai.
