Seeing a street car always evokes memories of the bright yellow streetcars of my youth in Amsterdam. That’s probably why I love them so much.
Not every city in Japan has them so I was really excited to spot a real life street car when I exited the train station in Hiroshima, as a bonus they’s super cool old fashioned ones and they come in different colors!
I spent my entire visit chasing down as many as I could, running to street corner and pedestrian crossings to capture them as they approached and left their stops, I need to capture all of the angles you see.
This scene reminds me of that weekend chasing streetcars around Hiroshima, don’t worry though, I managed to see the highlights too! We even made it out to Miyajima, the island where the deer roam free. But that’s a story for another painting.
