Tokyo Central is not a membership store, like Marukai is. We have a reward program that we offer to you. If you have a current Marukai Membership the Tokyo Central card is free to you. If you do not have a current Marukai Membership or it has expired, we offer the Tokyo Central card for $1. There are no annual fees. For more information please go to Tokyocentral.com and click on "membership". There it will explain the rewards we offer and how to acquire points. We look forward to your visit!
