■ Thoughts put into this project
“Mamo Rail” was born to respond to children’s feelings of “wanting to be trusted” and parents’ feelings of “wanting to trust, but feeling uneasy”. In October 2017, “Mamo Rail”, which started at 57 stations on JR East’s Chuo Line, has grown significantly into a joint business that can be used at 496 stations, with the addition of Toei
Transportation and Tokyo Metro from 2020. , has become more
Based on the idea that “Mamo Rail” would like to be a service that is close to parents and children, last year, when we held the first Mamo Rail “Honne Haiku Contest for Parents and Children”, we received applications from people of a wide range of generations. A total of 5,809 works far exceeded the collection. Worries unique to the rebellious period. A frustrating feeling that you can’t say directly to your child even if you want to. Honest feelings toward parents. The feeling of gratitude to my parents that I can’t usually speak. At its core, there are many things where you can feel the affection for the child and the parent, and I feel that I was able to catch a glimpse of the depth of the bond between the parent and the child. It may be that parents and children collide because their ties are strong.
For the 2nd time, we are looking for haiku poems that express the realities of parents and children that arise from the changes in parent-child relationships caused by the start of a new life. I am looking forward to seeing works that will make you laugh, and things that will make you laugh, and that will tell you the true story of each parent and child.

■ Thoughts that “Mamo Rail” cherishes
From elementary school to junior high and high school, children enter a period called adolescence. If you feel that the words from your parents are “blaming yourself” or “interfering”, you will close your heart even more. Children at this age are trying to become independent as they grow. It is important to trust the behavior of such children and watch over them with a sense of distance.
“Mamo Rail” was born to respond to children’s feelings of “wanting to be trusted” and parents’ feelings of “wanting to trust, but feeling uneasy”. The contents of the notification are “passing time”, “station used”, and “charging balance”. With GPS, there is more information, but I want to monitor with a greater sense of distance. Because it is not a service that understands everything, we will support you to watch over with a moderate sense of distance.
■ Reasons why “Mamo Rail” is recommended for watching over children 1. Automatic notification to e-mail or app when your child passes through the ticket gate!
Information about the child’s passing through the ticket gate is automatically sent to the parent/guardian, so even if the child does not contact the parent, the child will know when to return home, which will help alleviate minor daily anxieties. Notifications can be received not only by e-mail, but also by the push notification function of the “JR East App”. Since it is possible to predict the arrival time at the nearest station from the ticket gate passage information, meeting at the station will be smoother.
2. Up to 2 notification destinations can be registered!
You can register up to two e-mail addresses for notifications per child. (Additional charge of 110 yen per item)
Even in a busy double-income household, you can cooperate with your partner to watch over it, and you can also use it to set the second notification destination to your grandparents.
■ Efforts so far ～Supporting parent-child ties～
“Mamo Rail” has been working to support the bond between parents and children. We will continue to make efforts to support the bond between parents and children from the perspective of both guardians and children who are watching.
-Communication through parent-child cooking-
“Parent-child cooking communication” was born from the idea that there are many families where both parents and children are stressed as they have to refrain from going out under the influence of the spread of new coronavirus infections. . We support the bond between parent and child by changing the usual cooking to “time to enjoy with parent and child”.
