Deutsche Bahn: Die Bahn - advertising the new bahncard which gives 25 or 50% off the price of tickets. Just don't try it in a jewelary store.


And finally another cheesy one from Deutsche Bahn.

JR Central

Tokaido Shinkansen 25th anniversary (1989)


Soda Kyoto, iko. (Right, I'll go to Kyoto.) series, broadcasted in Kanto area, invites Tokyoites to visit Kyoto using Tokaido Shinkansen. The popular series has countless versions.

Spring




Summer




Autumn




Winter




Tokyo Bookmark series, broadcasted in Kansai area, invites Osakans to visit Tokyo using Tokaido Shinkansen. It's interesting to see the same line is advertized radically differently depending on target areas.

JR East

Nagano Shinkansen opening; Hilarious after you've watched Soda Kyoto, iko. series by JR Central. (JR Group companies are not necessarily friendly toward each other.)


Dialog:
Quote:

"We always have to come here on a school excursion..."
"Can't we go somewhere else?"
"I wanna play tennis!"
"I wanna go to Nagano!"
"What are you talking about? It's incovenient to go there."
"Huh? The Shinkansen to Nagano has opened."
"...Has it already?"
"Say that first!"

"Father, our group guest went to Nagano!"
"I had no idea..."

"Father!?"

Twice faster, 79 minutes. Shinkansen "Asama" goes to Nagano from October 1st.

"Maybe I'd wear sneakers..."
Akita Shinkansen opening;
"Wow, there really is Namahage!"
"We couldn't see it from the sky..."



Rather cheesy ad of Yamagata Shinkansen.


JR East 20th anniversary


Suica, a smart card used in Tokyo.




Ekinaka (shops inside stations). This ad series is touching.


Tokyo Station City (I don't know what it exactly means.)


Ad brodcasted in Hong Kong, inviting HKers to visit east Japan.

Thanks for sharing FML... I enjoyed that.

The Suica penguin is one of the cutest things around...

Penguin doing PR rounds in Shinagawa Station


In comparison, the PASMO character looks incredibly lame... It's grown on me a very tiny bit, but I still despise it.

not the railways but this is a really nice add of the Delhi Metro (actually a citi bank credit card which can be used as a metro pass) Very very catchy tune (though in Hindi)...



Unfortunately Indian railways isnt exactly bothered about PR much.....
