Good idea, but how is anyone going to fit that oversized novelty ticket in their pocket?

Will I be able to reach the dispensing buttons on such a large machine containing these giant tickets?

So you can't use it on the other subway in Tokyo? Places like HK have managed to merge their companies, and it makes everything so much easier and cheaper.

Also if Cathy Cat is involved the destinations should be a lot of fun!

Can't really compare Hong Kong's MTR merger with KCR.

Primary reason Tokyo Metro does not want to merge with Toei is that Tokyo Metro does not want to inherit Toei subway's debts. Any merger with those debts would drive Tokyo Metro's stock prices down (Tokyo Metro is a privatized company, whist Toei subway is operated by the Tokyo Government).
