Tram system is picturesque AND efficient. Just one more thing (along with mountains, bridges, rivers) that reminded me of my hometown, Pittsburgh.

We rode on the electric railway and we all enjoyed the transportation. The driver helped us find our hotel which was very nice of him.

Known where I’m from as a tram. If you are staying here then the likelihood of using this transportation is high. Very affordable. Remember, you only pay when you get off unless there is a conductor on duty during busy periods.

This was a relaxed way to travel, trams were punctual with plenty of room. 180 yen and you pay as you get off, either using cash or a travel card such as Suica.

Great system you can use your pasmo card on them as well, run frequently and you can take your luggage on them as well. Different routes criss cross over the city and getting to the main train station was easy

Known as the Hiroden for short, it is a transportation service in Hiroshima, run by the Hiroshima Electric Company. A very convenient mode of transportation both for the locals and tourists. Frequency is good and timely. A nice joy ride if nothing else.

Just like in the past, the city continued using streetcars even after the bombings. Very easy to navigate. Makes you feel like a local.
