Akita Prefecture, where Japan’s bear-hunting dogs get their namesake, once boasted the northernmost tram on Honshu, Japan’s main island. In this cool shot, all the greats of the early Sixties are seen. A Toyopet Crown waits for pedestrians in the foreground, a 410 Bluebird taxi headed in the opposite direction makes a right. The Esso station in the background hosts an Isuzu Bellett 1500, 210-series Datsun, and even a couple of Mitsubishi 500s, while the shop truck appears to be a Mazda B360. Finally, there’s the little Subaru 360 scooting behind the tram, just as happy as can be. These days, there aren’t many streetcars left in Japan; the Akita Tramway ceased operations on December 31, 1965.
