Shizuoka Railway Shizuoka–Shimizu Line
Shizuoka–Shimizu Line (静岡清水線 Shizuoka-Shimizu-sen ) is a LRT railway line in Shizuoka Prefecture, between Shin-Shizuoka in Aoi Ward and Shin-Shimizu in Shimizu Ward, all within the city of Shizuoka. Presently this is the only one railway Shizuoka Railway (Shizutetsu) operates. The line was made to link previous Shimizu City and Shizuoka cities, until the former was merged into the latter on April 1, 2003. The first segment of the line opened on May 18, 1908, and the extension was completed on December 9 of the same year.
The line has a fairly frequent service, with a trainset coming once per 5 minutes on busier hours, 6 minutes on daytimes and weekends, linking Shin-Shizuoka and Shin-Shimizu in 20 minutes. This frequency is unique among smaller private railways in Japan, which often have much less frequent services. All the trainsets are consisted of two cars, and have no boarded conductors. There is no rapid service. All the stations accept LuLuCa, a smart card ticketing system. They accept PiTaPa and ICOCA as well.
