Hiroshima Electric Railway operates streetcars on a 35.1 km route that includes six track lines (most of which run on the road) around the city from the Hiroshima Station stop in front of JR Hiroshima Station and a railroad line (which does not run on the road) from Hiroden Nishi Hiroshima to Hiroden Miyajima-guchi.
The A-bombed cars are still in operation, giving visitors a sense of the depth and resilience of the history of the city.
The variety of other exteriors, such as the “Green Mover APEX” super-low-floor train, are also enjoyable just to look at.
Although the JR train is the quicker way to get from Hiroshima Station to Miyajima (Miyajima-guchi, the entrance to the island), we dare to recommend a leisurely ride on the Hiroden train.
