Hankyu to End ‘Chiikawa Train’ Service on March 28, Offers Pre-order for Uniformed Plushies

Hankyu Railway will end its collaborative wrapping train service featuring characters from the Twitter-based manga ‘Chiikawa’ on March 28.

The collaboration wrapping train, which started operation on August 4, 2023, displays characters such as Chiikawa, Hachiware, and Usagi enjoying themselves at tourist spots along the lines on the front and rear sides of a train car on each of the Kobe, Takarazuka, and Kyoto lines. The Kobe line features the ‘Hachiware-go’, the Takarazuka line the ‘Chiikawa-go’, and the Kyoto line the ‘Usagi-go’, each with their respective headmarks. Furthermore, plush toys in Hankyu train-themed uniforms of each character are displayed in the driver’s cab.

These ‘BIG plush toys’ will be available for pre-order at the official Hankyu merchandise online shop. Priced at 17,490 yen (tax included), they are set to be shipped in late August or later.
