At the opening of the "Grave of the fireflies", Seita and Setsuko ride on train.
That is Hankyu(阪急) train and the station is San-no-miya in Kobe (三宮). The train has only 2 cars in this movie.
Now Hankyu train become very long and the design are modernized.
Hankyu railway connects Osaka and Kyoto and Kobe. Many railway fans love its neat figure painted maroon color.
