The Hankai tramway in the south of Osaka and Sakai provides a great atmosphere with its mixture of street running and reserved sections. Its type 161 was constructed in the late 1920s. 167 is seen at the tramway’s Abikomichi in mid September  2000. By Anthony Robins.


Cars of the type 161 featured a welcome variety of liveries. Here, 166 and 163 are seen at Abikomichi Depot in mid September 2000. The type was built by Kawasaki Sharyo. By Anthony Robins.
