Wandering the streets of Kochi... another of the few remaining Japanese cities with a streetcar service.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

I read that this street-car system was inaugurated in 1904 . . certainly this example looks ready to last forever !

That is one old streetcar. It looks similar to this one.

That looks like an antique, Daryl. It's amazing it's still running.
