Hiroden X Hiroshima Carp T-shirt

To commemorate the 20th year of the Hiroden streetcar festival the 100-year-old company has made a limited edition shirt with Hiroshima Carp.

June 15, 2015

The Hiroden Streetcar Festival is being held this Sunday, June 7 at its Senda-machi stockyard. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the event the century-old company has joined forces with the Hiroshima Carp to produce a limited edition T-shirt to be sold at the event.

The design features the Carp’s Carp Boya dressed as a Hiroden tram conductor with peaked cap in place of his usual helmet and brandishing an in car announcement mic instead of a bat. The Carp’s “Red Rising” logo is featured above the characters 広電祭 hiroden-matsuri.

Any T-shirts unsold at the festival will be available at Hiroden’s Senda-machi ticket office on Monday morning. However, considering Hiroshima folks’ passion for the Carp and love for its streetcars, we think it’s unlikely that there will be any left.
