The Railway Festival

Japanese train spotters take their hobby very seriously (ever seen the contest where people do vocal impressions of all the different train types?)  Actually, all of Japan takes railways seriously, which is why we have awesome trains like the Shinkansen and why the Ministry of Land Transport is the official organiser of this event.

Timed to coincide with National Railway Day, There will be booths from the main rail companies and Thomas the Tank Engine –  perennial favourite of pre-school children everywhere – will be there too.
