The local railway “Echigo Tokimeki Railway” that runs in the Joetsu region of Niigata Prefecture will release this product on Saturday, November 28th. This specially-designed “Tetsuin Book” is made using denim fabric for the cover.
Tetsuin are stamps issued by 40 local railway companies nationwide. They are gaining popularity all over the country as they can be recorded in a Tetsuin Book, and people enjoy collecting them. Until now, all five colors of Tetsuin Book were sold nationwide, but Echigo Tokimeki Railway has decided to release a specially designed original Tetsuin Book.
Tokitetsu Special Designed Tetsuin Book
Here it is! Compared to the Japanese-style Tetsuin Book currently on sale, the special design uses denim fabric for the front and back covers to create a casual atmosphere. In addition, the letters and illustrations have been changed from the usual gold to silver. This suggests the image of silver buttons on denim pants that shine over the dark blue. The back cover is decorated with the message logo “NO TRAIN, NO LIFE”, which symbolizes railway lovers.
