Nagano’s Local Partnership IC Card Named ‘KURURU’, Featuring ‘Arukuma’ in its Design


Nagano City, within Nagano Prefecture, has decided on the name ‘KURURU’ for its regional partnership IC card and will start the service in March 2025.

In addition to unique local services such as bus season tickets and a points system, the card can be used for boarding passes and electronic money in Suica areas and other areas where mutual use is practiced.

There are two designs: a general card in pastel blue and a card for seniors in pastel green. Featuring the snow-capped mountains from autumn to spring as a backdrop, the design illustrates Nagano Prefecture’s character ‘Arukuma’ taking a bus trip.
