Company Profile WJRYF
One of six entities created after the split and privatization of Japan’s nationwide railway operator, West Japan Railway, or JRW, is the country’s third-largest passenger railway operator by market capitalization. Its 5,013 kilometers of rail track covers about 34% of Japan’s population and 20% of its land area. Stable railway operations, which make up 64% of earnings, are overshadowed by lackluster nonregulated businesses, including retail facility management, travel and tourism, and real estate development.
