The Odakyu Goods Shop Trains, a popular shop that’s not just for train buffs!

Locally made specialty products, famous sweets and cosmetics are without question the most popular products for people visiting Japan, but you may feel that something a bit more creative is up your alley. We’d like to suggest you try Trains, the Odakyu shop.

In front of the underground ticket gate at the Odakyu West Exit, the Odakyu Goods Shop Trains is easily recognizable from its orange sign. As you will expect from the name, the shop sells products relating to trains and railroads. In addition to model trains (mainly for railway buffs), the shop is filled with a variety of great products, many made especially for Trains, that are excellent for sightseers just finding out how interesting trains are from their experiences in Japan.

According to the friendly employees, keyholders with Shinjuku, Odawara and other station names are popular among visitors from overseas, as are pass cases and chopsticks with Romancecar motifs.

To commemorate your trip, a memento bearing a location you visited or decorated with the motif of a train you used makes a great souvenir.

At Trains, you can also find products commemorating the debut of the new Romancecar GSE. Among the great things available are a craft train great for quality time between parents and children (English assembly instructions included!), fine-quality business card holders, and towels and bento lunchboxes with Romancecar GSE motifs. Whether for personal use or as a gift, Trains is stocked with loads of great things that kids and adults alike will enjoy.

And one more important thing before we wrap this article up: these products are not available for sale on the Romancecar, even at the on-board service counters. They are available exclusively at the Odakyu Goods Shop Trains. If you are looking for practical, well-designed train products, stop by! You’re sure to find a product for that Romancecar you rode on.
