Eizan Dentetsu Railway (shortened to “Eiden” by the locals) is a small two-track company operating solely in Kyoto, but hardcore anime fans may be aware of the name. That’s because, despite its size, it’s known for its collaborations with the manga and anime series Kiniro Mosaic, decking out their cars with special artwork for the series.
Small from a distance but visible on the very front, the Kinmoza art has been featured on Eiden’s trains three times in the past: in 2013, 2015, and again in November 2016 to coincide with the series’s film release.
On February 18, they’ll be stopping car 722 at Yase-Hieizanguchi Station for a special Kinmoza collaborative event. The station will display multiple art pieces used on the cars in the past, as well as life-sized standees and original, never-before-seen art pieces.
The event will run from 11 AM to 4 PM.
