A Tram in Helsinki
The tram is an important form of transportation in Helsinki.
You can find the tram and the station easily.
It’s easy to ride and get off anywhere you like because the network covers the center of the city and the trams come often.
There are two magor differences between Finland and Japan.
First, you don’t need to show your ticket to the driver. However, if you are found by a ticket inspector that you didn’t buy a ticket, you’ll need to pay 80euro. It’s strict.
The second is that there aren’t any noisy announcements in the tram.
In Japan, you can hear the announcer say something like “The next stop is Mm. Please do not use a cell phone. Please give your seat to elderly people”
As for the tram in Tokyo, there are only two old trams, which are the Toden Arakawasen and Setagaya lines. They still run and are used by local people. Some people love them very much because of the nostalgia.
