Japan is an island nation consisting of more than 6,800 islands. It is also a major water navigation country with more than 470 lakes and 30,000 rivers, and a large number of boats and ships in operation. The types of boats vary from those in the north that break through the floating ice to those in the south that sail over the colorful tropical fish! Enjoy boat trips with breathtaking views!
GOSEN-IN Cruise Stamps are the ship version of GOSHU-IN, which can be obtained at temples and shrines. More than 80 shipping companies and maritime museums around the nation issue their own stamps.
You can participate in the GOSEN-IN Challenge and collect GOSEN-IN stamps on your boat trips. Why not collect them like postcards as a memento of your trip?
Most GOSEN-IN are printed pieces of paper with illustrations of ships and tourist attractions, company names, and dates. Some even have handwritten words by a captain or staff member!
You can paste them on a notebook or collection booklet to enjoy them later as a souvenir of your trip?
Size: about 15 cm (height) x 10 cm (width)
Most of the stamps cost about 300 to 500 yen, but there are some luxury anniversary editions that cost over 1,000 yen!
Please check at the service counter, as it depends on the company and the stamp type.
You can buy GOSEN-IN at ticket counters and kiosks at the departure and arrival terminals of participating shipping companies, as well as at kiosks onboard.
Sales hours depend on the operating hours of terminals and onboard stores. Please check with the participating companies.
A collection booklet is an accordion notebook made of traditional Japanese paper, on which 46 GOSEN-IN stamps can be pasted. You can extend it fully to display and enjoy all the stamps you have collected at a glance!
The collection booklet issued by the GOSEN-IN administration office is called "GOSEN-IN official collection booklet."
Among a few different designs, RURI is the standard booklet in the project's theme color "ruri (lapis lazuli)" with silver foil decoration.
