Travel to any major city in Japan and you’re bound to end up on a subway or two, but we just can’t get enough of the country’s trams. Known as romendensha in Japanese, some of these streetcars have been around since the 19th century and are a great way to get around without missing the sights and sounds of a city.
There are still a handful of classic tram lines remaining across the country – you'll find them in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto, as well as Enoshima and Sapporo. And let’s not forget Hiroshima, which has turned its streetcars into moving museums. Here are some of our favourite trams in Japan.
