poster for "Tokyo Setagaya Line Story" Exhibition

This event has ended.

The Tokyu Setagaya Line was originally a branch line of the former Tamagawa Denki Tetsudo's Tamagawa Line, aka Tama-den. The Tokyu Setagaya Line started operating on May 11th, 1969, and this year marks its 40th anniversary.

Since the period of Japan's rapid economic growth up until today, the Setagaya Line has seen the changes that have taken place during the Showa and Heisei periods. The entire ride, from Sangenjaya to Shimotakaido, takes only about 20 minutes. The two-car train runs through the Setagaya residential area not only as a means of commuting but also as a symbol of the ward.

Commemorating its 40th anniversary, this exhibition presents 3D models and photographs of the Setagaya Line and sketches of the train created by elementary school children from the neighborhood. This exhibition also serves as a kick-off event for the coming 50th anniversary of the train line, which involves a hands-on flower planting event to be held along the length of the line.

Photo exhibition: Seikatsu Kobo Gallery (3F)
3D Model Exhibition: Workshop B (4F), on display from May 10th.
