Just chugging along. I liked it. I felt like I was on one of the San Francisco trolleys. Except without all the lines. And cheaper. It reminded me of the soul-train.

Easy and quick way of getting to places. You pay when you exit the tram, you need to pay exact amount but there is a machine to change coins next to it. Trams are only located on the east side of the river.

Tram stops are located throughout Nagasaki. It’s cheap to use (120 yen). The screens onboard inform you of upcoming stops.
