Japan Railway x Kumpel Pochibukuro

by Kumpel

This is a Tokyo Station x Kumpel collaboration pochibukuro (mini paper bag).  Tokyo station is the main intercity rail terminal in Tokyo (more info about Tokyo station HERE), and this station is a must-visit place if you come to Tokyo.  What makes this paper bag unique is that inside the envelope it is printed with 地紋 special pattern which is also used for printing train tickets for security reason.

Please select one from 4 colors: Kraft, Blue Gray, Vermilion and Moss Green.

Kumpel is a quite new stationery brand established in 2017 by Yamaguchi Securities Printing Inc established in 1921 as a printing company to print tickets.  They have been printing tickets for many train and bus companies such as Japan Railway Company and Tokyo Metro, but due to the degitalization of train tickets from paper tickets to pre-paid IC card, needs for paper tickets decreasing.  Therefore, they decided to challenge themselves in a new industry which is stationery.
