1930s Streetcars of Nagasaki

Comments to a post earlier today — Big Government, Big Highways — reminded me of one of my favorite charms of one of my favorite cities:

Hiroshima also has similar old trains, which have proven quite useful when visiting that fascinating city.

I've been to both a-bombed cities. Strangely, these seem to have retained more of the old than the other two Japanese cities I've visited, Tokyo and Fukuoka.

Nagasaki is a very charming city. The last time I was there was in 2006. Come to think of it, the hilly terrain and streetcars somewhat remind me of San Francisco. On the other hand, the near-tropical weather was reminiscent of Hawaii. Someday, I hope to visit again.

Adrian, it's good to hear from you after all this time. Yes, Nagasaki brings SF to mind, and its near-tropical weather was quite nice.

Back when I was a traveler, it was one of my favorite cities that I had chanced upon. Others were Arica, Chile, Mendoza, Argentina, and Georgetown, Malaysia. Now, I'd be happy never to set foot outside of North Kyungsang Province, or whatever country in the U.S. I find myself living in someday, preferably in Western New York.
