There is no Seibu Train festa in 2020 due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The festival was expected to be held on the first Saturday of June, but Seibu announced earlier in the year that they would not proceed with the festival this year, 2020.

The annual Seibu Train Festa will take place on Saturday June 1st. It is a free event held in the Musashigaoka Carriage Marshalling yard in Hidaka. Normally a freight and operations railway center, the marshalling yard will be open to the public on the day of the festival only.

The festival is very family orientated and will be of particular interest to train lovers of all ages. Apart from having a number of specialty train items on sale on the day, there are a number of events and hands on experiences for all and sundry to try out. Please note you need a special ticket that can be obtained on the official website to enter one section of the specialty store. They will go on sale this Friday (May 24th 2019).

There are a number of train specialty stores participating on the day with limited edition train merchandise on sale. You can also purchase food on the day as there are food booths. They even have stage performances.


This festival is only accessible by train or on foot, i.e no cars. Last year they had a special train that ran into the marshaling yard, but they don’t seem to have that this year.

You can access Musashigaoka from either Koma Station or Hanno station. From the latter there is a free shuttle bus on the day of the festival. From Koma station it is about 12 minutes on foot.

The event will go ahead in the case of light rain, but it maybe cancelled if there is heavy rain or stormy weather.
