At the annual Seibu Train Festa, there is something for train fans young and old. This event is a rare chance to see inside Seibu's largest vehicle inspection facility. Demonstrations, exhibits, and interactive and experiential booths deepen your understanding of how trains and the train system works.

Kids particularly will enjoy playing in the ultra-cute, kid-sized trains, trying on the train conductor's uniforms, and watching some of the most elaborate miniature train sets. Train enthusiasts also take this opportunity to buy limited-edition Seibu railway goods and parts.

Enjoy all-day stage events and the special train-themed food fair.

Although the event is free to enter, you must reserve a ticket in advance through the Seibu Line app.

Getting there

Only on the day of the event, there will be special direct trains from Hanno Station (Seibu Ikebukuro Line) and Koma Station (Seibu Chichibu Line) to the venue for the convenience of visitors. There will also be free shuttle service to and from Hanno Station. Visitors are discouraged from driving in private cars.
