JR East to open "General Store Railyard" in Omiya Station

Recommended Posts

JR East will be opening a railway goods shop called General Store Railyard in the west concourse of Omiya Station.  At the link below you can find a pdf illustrating some of the items available.  Among other goodies, a few must-haves:


  • JR East pajamas as used on the Hokutosei sleeper service
  • parts pulled from retired rolling stock
  • dining car beef curry
  • Hokutosei spoon and fork set
  • decals as used inside E233 series cars to indicate car designation/number, decals displaying depot and passenger capacity
  • towels, key chains, stationery
  • Kato E651 Swallow Akagi limited edition model

This will open Saturday, March 25, 2017.  JR East, please take my money.  Courtesy of Railfan News.

So is this some limited time store thingy?

No, I don't think so.  Some of the items may be limited-time but the store itself is permanent, or as permanent as any retail store is.

Sounds like it might be worth dropping in when you are passing through just to see what special items they have.

I REALLY wish they had a web shop too...

Seconded :).  But for us they'd have to have international shipping too :(
