trams on display
（1）5500 series (Unit No. 5501)
Manufactured in 1954, using the latest American technology at that time. Called a PCC Car, this tram features a unique streamlined car and high performance, including low noise and high acceleration. This American style tram belonged to the Mita Depot and was operated on Route 1 (Shinagawa-ekimae Station - Ueno-ekimae Station).
（2）Old 7500 series (Unit No. 7504)
Manufactured in 1962. This tram features two big lights, which are rarely found on other Toei trams. After belonging to the Aoyama Depot, the 7504 was moved to the Arakawa Depot in accordance with the decrease in routes. For several years before being retired from the track, the 7504 was operated mainly to transport students for the morning rush hour, and was called "Gakuen-go (School Tram)" by passengers.
In the tram on display (PCC Car), there are a Memorial Diorama created with the theme of the worldview in the 1950s to 1960s when trams flourished, and a Memorial Graffiti Box, in which various items related to the Toden are exhibited.
A Daredemo Toilet (multipurpose toilet) equipped with a baby seat and ostomate facilities has been installed in the square.
