We used this tram to get to Okayama Castle and Korakuen Gardens. You catch it from the middle of the roadway just outside the Okayama train station. It’s only 100 yen each way and leaves every 5 minutes.

These teams are very convenient. Can pay with coins 100 to 140 yen. Or can use a Pasmo card. Trams run ever 5 minutes and are comfortable.

the line is not too long but very interesting. You can choose the type tramway you want to ride: from very old to very modern. Very reasonable fees.

Its quite easy to use, with displays telling you when the next tram will come. You board from the back and exit from the front. If you have an ICOCA card, you can use that, but remember to touch your card to the card reader...More

After spending some days in Tokyo you find yourself in the past with this lovely tramway, really a good way to move. Not expensive, fast and really a jump in the past.
