In addition to busses and trains, Hiroshima also has a tram system which covers the city center. I love the trams....to me, they feel like a throwback to that bygone, more innocent era it seems everybody is always looking for. The problem, though, with the tram system is that there is usually about a ten-minute wait between trams. For me, ten minutes is a long time to stand on a chilly, windy platform in the middle of the road while I wait for the next tram car to come because I just barely missed the last one. To be honest, I'd just rather walk most of the time. But I'm glad Hiroshima has the tram system and I'd screech along with the rest of 'em (whoever 'em might be) if the city ever decided to rid itself of the tram system, which, hopefully, it won't.
This is my Saturday entry for Show Me Japan, the photo meme that those great folks over at Budget Trouble have put on for 10 straight weekends (here's to 100!).
