  1. Yes, these pencils were made by Mitsubishi for the Hokkaido Kiosk Corporation, this corporation operates the kiosks at JR Hokkaido so technically these pens are not issued in any way by JR. They are sold as gifts/souvenirs. The inner lid identifies the different colours with different train lines. Interestingly it also contains a space for elementary school students to write their name, class and school year.
