SHOWA SNAP: Chiyoda, Tokyo, 1972

Tokyo’s subway system is a confounding wonder, but as late as 1972 the metropolis still had streetcars that drove alongside traffic. Here in the Chiyoda district, 510 Bluebirds, Cedrics, Sunnys, Corona Mark IIs, and kujira Crowns teem among the rails. Just another day in Tokyo.

    There is still one trolley line running in Tokyo, the Sakura cherry blossom line to Waseda University. It’s a bit hard to get to, but I’m going to try to ride it the next time I’m in Tokyo.
