  • Well, I don't know at what stage it originated, but I personally think that the first operation as a commercial railway is between Shinbashi and Yokohama, which I learned in history. It is very similar to Yokohama, and there are many "birthplaces" here and there.

  • The event that came from this "birthplace of our railways" was that Thomas Glover, a British trader, laid a 600m track along the southwest coast from a monument alright and ran a British locomotive. Glover seems to have intended to sell to Japan, and it is said that two passenger cars were connected to the steam locomotive, and the test drive was carried out for about one month. That was seven years ago in Shinbashi Shinagawa. Therefore, it seems to be the origin of the first place of the railway.
