HISTORIC SETAGAYA TRAM – Tokyu Setagaya Line

2019.07.23

Tenants in our HIPPO Sakura Share House in Setagaya take the historical Tokyu Setagaya Line. 

The Setagaya Line was opened by the Tamagawa Electric Railway (玉川電気鉄道 Tamagawa Denki Tetsudō, “Tamaden”) in 1923, running on surface streets between Shibuya and the Tama River. Since the railway merged with Tokyu in 1938, the balance of the line closed in 1969, leaving this isolated section as the sole Tokyu line to use 1,372 mm (4 ft 6 in) gauge.

The Setagaya Line and the Toden Arakawa Line (the only surviving line of the former Tokyo Toden network) are the only railway lines in Tokyo proper to be legally classified as tramways, although the Enoshima Electric Railway in the Greater Tokyo Area also has similar status.
