This station in front of the Atomic Bomb Dome is one of the stops of the Hiroshima-Dentetsu, also known as the streetcar called ""Chin-chin tram."" This tram, as one of the symbols of Hiroshima, has run since before the war and is said to have restarted its operation just 3 days after the drop of the A-Bomb even with a totally burned car. Female students served as conductors at that time and they bravely got onto the train to fulfill their mission, though they also suffered from the disaster. How people were encouraged by the tram running through the city with the its cheerfully ringing bell.
70 years have passed, but it is still known as a means of transportation for citizens and tourists. More recently, new types of cars were adopted for each line and you can now also see low-floor vehicles, specialized in barrier-free systems on the number 2 line, which is called Miyajima-sen at Genbaku Dome-mae Station .
