The Japanese Railway Society (JRS) was founded in 1991 in London to promote the knowledge of the
railways of Japan in the UK & other non-Japanese-speaking parts of the world. Since 1991, there have
been several activities like exhibitions (also of railway models), a TV-show (on Naruhodo The World, Fuji TV),
many meetings in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and many guided tours to and meetings in Japan.
Our membership is now more than 200 people in over 10 countries worldwide.

    JR East Ōmiya Workshops

    2020 has been a tragic year, and one many will be glad to see the end of. As the year draws to a close we take a look at some shots in falling light. We wish all our members a happier 2021, and look forward to journeys ahead.
