On Maachun’s birthday, 4/11, the train company is converting two train cars on the route from Kansai Airport all the way to Namba station. Tickets go on sale on 3/19. Maachun (and Ripopo+Riichan) will act as conductors, check your tickets, and hand out some signed goods. Cost is 5,650 yen (equivalent to about $56) and it also comes with tickets to the theatre performance. Unfortunately it’s only limited to 80 people.
I think that’s pretty cool. Takes her intro phrase and makes into a reality. Lots of random comments about how Yoshimoto has huge marketing arms (I suppose it’s not easy to rent out two train cars) but still. Pretty cool.
Also realized that when writing this post, the exchange rate for yen is really good! Man. The last times I went it was always vicious, somewhere in the 70-80￥ = $1 range, but now it’s 95￥. That’s really, really good. Really good. Oh man. Gourmet trips here we come~
