Yuirail inaugural ticket to become collector痴 item

Date Posted: 2003-07-18

A special limited edition monorail ticket will mark the August 10 grand opening for Okinawa痴 only railway. The Yurail monorail track will travel an 18-kilometer route from Naha Airport to Shuri. To commemorate the opening, the company has prepared a special limited edition ticket that is sure to become a collectors・item, as only 3,000 of them have been printed. The tickets -- the size of a postcard and in full color -- will be sold only at stations at both ends of the rail at Naha Airport and Shuri, and at the monorail headquarters at Ashimine.

The ticket is priced the same as the regular Airport ・Shuri ticket at \290. They are numbered from 1 to 3000. Officials at Yuirail say that the company has received numerous inquiries from people outside Okinawa asking to purchase the ticket in advance, but they assure that they will be available only at the stations. They expect several train enthusiasts visit Okinawa for the sole reason of purchasing the ticket. As Okinawa is the only prefecture in Japan with no railroad, the monorail becomes its first and only railway, and that is expected to add to the collector value of the tickets.
