Let's have fun at the Yokohama Tramway Preservation Center, which has renewed the history and mystery of Yokohama!

Yokohama-shi Isogo-ku, Takigashira (Takigashira) with Yokohama City Electric Preservation Center is along the Hori Oki River on the way from Kannai of Yokohama to National Route 16 Route.

This place, which used to be the site of the Takigashira vehicle factory in Yokohama City Tram, is now the Takigashira branch office of a Yokohama municipal bus, and the first floor part of the adjacent municipal housing is the Tramway Preservation Center. It's quite unusual for a museum to have a house on top.

What's in the Yokohama City Railway Preservation Center?

Seven vehicles are currently stored here. You can freely go inside and sit in the driver's seat, or touch the wooden handrails to enjoy the retro atmosphere.

This cream-blue line was also featured in the movie “Kokrikko Saka kara” (produced by Studio Ghibli, 2011) set in Yokohama in 1963.

The old train of the tram has a classic interior

The old train of the tram is classically furnished and has a wonderful atmosphere that can be remodeled into a small bar.

This is a relatively new vehicle interior.
The floor is wood but it is close to the interior of the train and bus now. This is also retro enough, but when you compare it, it looks like the old car has a sense of luxury.

It is not only the vehicles that are on display. The railway diorama, such as N gauge and 0 gauge, has also been renovated, and new vehicles are running on N gauge.
