Train travel (tourism tourist train tram Guidance)

Guidance sightseeing train

To commemorate 100 years of tram service in Kagoshima City, the retro sightseeing tram Kagoden was created in homage to wooden trams that ran from the Taisho Era (1912 – 1926) through Showa Era Year 30 (or 1955). The accompanying tour guides are all local volunteers.
