Japanese Train Fees

Hello,
I've come across this website:

http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/norikae/e-norikeyin.html

You tell it which station you want to go to and where from, and your travel dates/times and it produces routes, including fees for you.

However some of the routes don't have a fee, and come up with a little arrow instead (e.g. do Kyoto to Ayase). Can anyone explain this to me?


And another question, I've heard mentioned before a "suica card" and "passnet card". Can somebody please explain these to me, and also how I got about getting one?

I guess you don't have to pay for the part.
For example, when you use the Shinkansen and get off at a station on the Yamanote line (Tokyo station in this case), you don't have to pay extra money for another station on the line (Nishi-Nippori in this case). Actually, it happens anywhere within areas called "Shiteitokushinai"(指定都区市内). The one around Tokyo station is called "Tokyotokunai"(東京都区内), and it includes all the stations on the Yamanote line and some other JR stations around/inside it.

Ah, I see. Thank you.

What about "passnet cards"?

Many thanks.
I did use Google. Maybe I need to look at my filter settings - I think it could be stopping some Japanese sites.
