Kotsu Shobo, a long-standing shop that sells a variety of railway related items, is well-known and particularly popular amongst collectors. They carry a range of items such as platform tickets from stations that no longer operate, train tickets, and a selection of rare old-fashioned JR prepaid ‘orange cards’. Many items the shop offers could be viewed as things that only a die-hard rail fan would appreciate, and many only have value as collection-building showpieces. Other items on sale here include old ticket punches that many people may not recognise nowadays, sideboards displaying the destination of trains from yesteryear, and various old-school items such as a range of uniforms worn by train crews from the bygone days of the rail system.
