[JPN] Hakodate Trans. Bureau Trams

Postby Sir Pompously » Wed Jan 30, 2013 3:53 pm

Photos from a recent trip to Hakodate in Hokkaido Prefecture. I have been to Hokkaido a few times but have never stayed anywhere else but Sapporo, so it was good to be able to base myself in the busy little city of Hakodate. The photos are of the tram network operated by the Hakodate Transport Bureau.

Tram 8101 in special NHK Domo Kun livery is seen arriving into Hakodate Dokku Mae station. Domo Kun has a huge western following but many do not know that Domo Kun is actually a TV mascot for NHK (Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai)

Now for something a little different and very strange indeed:

This is the first concrete electricity pole in Japan installed in 1923 located near the foreign district in Hakodate. Various road signage points to this landmark and the landmark itself has an information board which can be viewed at the following link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kommissar_ ... otostream/
