It's the 150th anniversary of Japan's first railroads this year, and Japan Railways is offering a sort of birthday present for real railfans: a limited edition set of special binders containing station admission tickets.
The six binders contain a ticket for each of the 4,368 stations in the system and go for 700,000 yen, or about $5400, for each of the 250 sets. Since ordinary admission tickets go for 130 to 200 yen, it works out to about the same price as buying one of each separately—although without all the work and with the binders as a bonus.
And, they're not souvenir tickets, either. They are valid for use to enter a station, once each. But since the binders go on sale October 14, Railway Day and the tickets expire on March 31, anyone who wants to use them to visit all the stations is going to need to keep moving, very fast, likely by train.
