Keikyu Corporation, which provides access from Haneda Airport to Tokyo and Yokohama areas, is holding the "Lucky Station Name Ticket Campaign" to coincide with the lunar New Year from January 27 (Mon.) to February 28 (Fri.) at the Keikyu Tourist Information Center established at Haneda Airport.
In this campaign, 1000 limited edition special platform tickets are being sold to visitors to Haneda Airport from overseas for "Kogane-cho Station" as tickets for a lucky station name in order to promote the lunar New Year mood.
There are a total of 73 stations on the Keikyu Line, however "Kogane-cho Station" is a very historical station opened for business in May of 1930. The station's name means "golden" which is a lucky name in Japanese. The special platform ticket designed for this campaign is a limited edition special ticket which displays the station name in koganeiro (gold color) in commemoration of the station name's meaning of "gold".
The special platform ticket comes in a set with a vinyl case which can be used as a souvenir or strap, and a leaflet explaining the special platform ticket (available in traditional Chinese, Korean and English) and is a great for both those who love trains and those who don't as a lucky charm.
Keikyu Electric Railway has had many railway users from East Asia and other markets with large numbers of individual travelers in particular since the opening of the "Haneda Airport International Terminal Station" in October of 2010, and works to promote continued railway usage by visitors from overseas.
See the details on the attached sheet.
