Aerodynamic Shinkansen Pencil Case
Currently out of stock
Tired of fumbling for pens, phone chargers and Tic Tacs in the bowels of your bag? Well, this slick pencil case in the shape of a special-purpose Japanese bullet train is a stylish solution to your problems.

Far more aerodynamically efficient than your typical pencil case*, this is a detailed replica of the first carriage of the "Doctor Yellow" Shinkansen train - a high-speed test vehicle used to monitor track conditions on the Shinkansen line. It gets its nickname from its bright yellow, blue-striped livery (unlike ordinary white shinkansen trains) and its diagnostic duties in testing rail conditions.

The case mirrors both the exterior and the interior design of the train, from its broad snub nose and wraparound front window to its two-door entrance to cabin and carriage. Strikingly original, it makes a perfect gift for any Japanophile, student or bullet-train aficionado.

(* Based on estimates; rigorous aerodynamic testing has not been performed on this pencil case.)
