Another Rainy Day in Nagasaki: Hors d' commerce

Hiro Kurashina

"This is a view of the main street taken from a tram on a rainy day in the historic city of Nagasaki on the southern island of Kyushu in Japan. The quiet streetscape, as seen through the front windshield of the tram, somehow caught my attention. This view presents quite a contrast to busy urban centers in Japan, such as Tokyo and Osaka.

The tram is vintage but retrofitted with modern ticketing equipment. A conductor is no longer on board. A lone driver operates the tram and also keeps track of the riders. The tram is an essential means for engaging the dynamic historic fabric and the unique cultural heritage of Nagasaki. There is so much to explore in the Historic City of Nagasaki."
