08/05/2018 A day out on the last remaining street car line in Tokyo. Part 5, Koshinzuka to Arakawa-shakomae station.

After enjoying a step back in time exploring a traditional Tokyo shopping street and buying some old style rice cracker biscuits we returned to Koshinzuka station and caught the next streetcar to Arakawa-shakomae for a brief stop to see the rose bush lined tracks and the main depot for the Toden-Arakawa line. The tram we caught was a new car decorated to echo very early streetcar design and we saw a couple of genuine old trams parked up in a little display next to the depot.
We broke open the rice crackers for a snack and very tasty they were too.
