Hankai Tramway: Osaka's One & Only Tram Network *RERUN
With a history of more than 100 years, Hankai Tramway, which connects Osaka City and Sakai City, is the only tram operator in Osaka Prefecture. With 2 other companies connecting the cities, Hankai Railway's ridership fell into decline, and just 10 years ago the section connecting Osaka City and Sakai City was in danger of closing. See how the company's ridership has increased with local government support. Also, see the company's new ultra-low-floor vehicle as well as Japan's oldest tram.
