Are you aware that TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel site, and subway networks located in Tokyo & Osaka are collaborating to hold a stamp rally event?
The “Tokyo & Osaka Subway Rally,” jointly conducted by the Bureau of Transportation, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Tokyo Metro Co., Ltd. and the Osaka Municipal Transportation Bureau, is a stamp-collecting rally event complete with its own special leaflet that introduces numerous tourist spots in both cities. These popular spots have been especially selected based on information provided by TripAdvisor, a website that has gathered more than 200 million travel reviews from countries worldwide.

(With some exceptions), the leaflet may be obtained from the leaflet racks found at various stations belonging to the subway networks run by the Bureau of Transportation, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Tokyo Metro Co., Ltd. and the Osaka Municipal Transportation Bureau. So that foreign travelers can also enjoy the fun, in addition to being in Japanese, the leaflets also list their information in English, Korean and Chinese. The rally stamps can be found at subway stations located close-by popular tourist spots such as Tokyo Skytree and Ueno Park in Tokyo, and Osaka Castle and Kuromon Ichiba Market in Osaka. Participants who collect three or more different stamps from the participating subway stations in each city will receive a present as a “Goal Award.” There is also a “Tokyo-Osaka Achievement Prize” for participants who collect all the stamps in both cities.

This stamp-collecting rally allows participants to also enjoy the pleasures of Japan’s subways, something strongly-evaluated worldwide. It will run until September 27, 2015 (Sun.). Take this opportunity to obtain the special stamp rally leaflet and please use it while enjoying the exploration of both cities.
