Our Story

“We hope to continue being the bridge for our passengers – not just by taking them places – by creating new encounters beyond the train tracks and level crossings."

We are committed to serve you the best of Japan–not just during your travel. We want to be able to extend to you that authentic Japan experience both in and out of Japan. And that has always been our main objective as a collective; to spread the love for Japan by sharing information about anything and everything Japan!

Join  us as we bring you around Japan–both the less travelled and more–so you can make the most out of your Japan memories.

Our Company

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 the needs and lifestyles of our many customers, JR-EAST has developed many business expansions in addition to its railway business, such as commercial facilities, hotels, retail businesses, and e-commerce. Its Southeast Asia (SEA) branch is currently based in Singapore.

Particularly, JR-EAST has developed the commercial in-station mall facility known as "Ekinaka" (エキナカ). We collaborate with thousands of local makers to introduce exclusive seasonal and regional products that can only be bought at JR stations, which are typically sold only at their respective cities and travel destinations.
