After boarding in front of Hakodate Station, the tram proceeded down the street with the car. After passing the Jujigai stop, it turns left and proceeds down the center of the spacious street with a look of its own. The tram, which runs in an area that is not downtown and a bit far from tourist attractions, is so empty that I dream that it is my own private tram, and then I see Mt. Hakodate in the direction I was going. Then the Yachigashira stop, the last stop, was almost there. Yachigashira stop is supposed to be the terminal station where the rails end. I don't know why, but I am attracted to terminal stations located at the end of railroad lines, so I was curious about the Yachigashira stop.
I settled down right next to the driver's seat and stared at the end of the rails. As soon as the double track merged with the single track, the track ended. That was the Yachigashira stop. The only sign of the end of the line was a simple red and white cross on a small plaque at the end of the track. It was an easy way to mark the end of a line that had gone on for so long. It looks like the end point of a model railroad. I think I am attracted to terminal stations because I like scenes where something that I thought would go on forever comes to an end so easily.
