The Anime and Manga train service of the Kyoto Subway (KYOMAF-Go) started working in August 11!
In order to promote both the use of the Kyoto subway and the Kyoto International Manga and Anime Fair (short: KYOMAF) which will be held on September 17 and 18, the Kyoto International Manga and Anime Fair Executive Committee announced a special subway train called ‘MaFuGo’. The train is decorated with the exhibitors’ works on the outside and inside and starts its service on August 11.
■Manga and Anime Train Service!
The KYOMAF-Go train will be decorated with characters from works like Mobile Suit Gundam: ‘Iron-Blooded Orphans’, SERVAMP -サーヴァンプ-, Twin Star Exorcists and a variety of works by Happy Elements. The train is scheduled to run on the Karasuma line.
This isn’t going to be the usual subway trip, so give yourself the chance to enjoy a different train experience.
The train cars will feature several characters from manga and anime on the car windows and handholds as well as on the interior and exterior walls.
* Starting from September there will be a train with the same decoration running on the Tozai line. We will keep you updated!
