Eki Stamps
#1
When I was in Japan I found out about this nifty hobby of collecting stamps at Railway Stations. Just about every railway station in Tokyo has a stamp pad and stamp that you can stamp into a book. It's sometimes a challenge in the bigger stations just to find where the stamp pad is located.

After hunting around in bookstores I managed to get one of these special stamp books for my Eki Stamps (Station Stamps).

Harajuku and Tokyo Station:

Here is the Enoshima Railway Company stamp at Kamakura:

I think it's mostly kids who collect the stamps in Japan but it makes a great souvenir for tourists (particularly rail fans).

That is a very nice booklet Finno. How big are the stamps? Does 'Eki' mean station?

The book is a small notebook size you can stick in your back pocket and the stamps are about palm size.

I believe Eki means station but one of our more Japanese fluent members may be able to confirm.

Read all about it here!

Or here!

Yes, Eki   is station.  The text on Finno's book says  鉄道 railway   スタンプ stamp    帳  book.
