What is the Pokemon Stamp Rally?

The Pokemon Stamp Rally has been held almost every year since 1997, and has become a regular summer vacation event. Although there have been years when the event has been cancelled due to various reasons, it has become a popular event for children (and adults, of course) to participate during the school summer vacation period, and has remained a popular event to this day due to the advantage for JR East, a railroad company, of earning transportation revenue.

Let’s enjoy summer in Japan by participating in Pokemon Stamp Rally!
