East Japan Railway Company

East Japan Railway Company (JR East) is one of the largest railway companies which serves eastern Japan including Tokyo. It has been 150 years since Japan opened its first passenger railway with the steam locomotives imported from Great Britain in 1872. We are introducing the history of Japan Rail as well as promoting exciting rail travel at Hyper Japan. You can also experience the Japanese station style digital vending machine and enjoy £1.5 promotion in honour of the 150th anniversary. Please visit our booth and learn more!
