#238 Discount Ticket Shops

These shops can be seen around most big stations and in cities.


They buy discounted tickets in bulk and resell them to individuals at a cost 5-10% cheaper than the regular price.

They’re often referred to as ‘kinken shops’ which means voucher/coupon shops.


They’re identifiable by their white signs listing destinations and prices in red.

They may look a little shady but they are totally legit
