RAIL CROSS’s logo depicts a train motif at the top centre and train tracks all around, representing JR-EAST’s establishment as first and foremost a railway company. Right beside the train motif are two takara musubi (宝結び Treasure Knot)—a motif which resembles the decorative knot used to wrap sacred objects and valuable treasures since ancient times in Japan. The takara musubi motif also symbolises good fortune and wishes for eternal prosperity, longevity, and happiness.

East Japan Railway Company (JR-EAST) is Japan's largest railway and service operating company.
In Japan, we operate 1,682 stations and serve 17.8 million passengers per day. In order to meet to the needs and lifestyles of our many customers, JR-EAST has developed many businesses in addition to its railway business, such as commercial facilities, hotels, retail businesses, and e-commerce.
Particularly, JR-EAST has developed the commercial facility known as "Ekinaka" (エキナカ), cooperating with thousands of tenants to introduce exclusive seasonal and regional products that can only be bought at JR stations for those who ride with JR-EAST, which are typically sold only at their respective cities and travel destinations.
Through RAIL CROSS, our new cross-border e-commerce venture, we wish to bring to you products, information, and stories that can only be found in Japan.
Established since 2015
