The Hiroshima Electric Railway ("Hiroden") operates a number of tram lines in Hiroshima, Japan. The active roster counts 271 streetcars. The various lines total 19km in-city and an additional 16.1km railway-style route tied into the tram system that runs to Miyajima. The length of the system and number of cars qualifies Hiroshima as the largest tram system presently in operation in Japan.
