In our city, Toyohashi City, Aichi Prefecture, there is a streetcar. Between Sports Park Station and Toyohashi Station Turn at the Ibara intersection, but this turn is As a railway track, it is considered to be the toughest place with the first curve in Japan. Vehicles passing through here have bare dollies on wheels. The rails creak and the car body tilts heavily as it passes I don't think you can see it anywhere else. At one time, there was a proposal to abandon the railway, but as an important foot for citizens and as the best in Japan I want you to run forever. It's pretty cool to see how the streetcar looks like it's drifting. Photographed on the evening of March 1, 2024 Nikon COOLPX L610
