The 14 October is Railway Day (鉄道の日), commemorating the date in 1872 that Shimbashi was linked to Yokohama by railroad. The Railway Festival the weekend before aims to promote awareness of railway safety, but more broadly acts as an event where adults and children can learn more about the trains and rail network. In total 49 railway companies from across the country will man the booths, selling original goods, and there will also be shows for kids on the main stage.
