Former Toden streetcar in Shinjuku, near Golden Gai; this is a scene from the yakuza movie,「無頼」より 大幹部 Burai yori daikanbu (1968), aka Outlaw: Gangster VIP.

This streetcar has long since been removed and is now Shinjuku Esplanade Park 「新宿遊歩道公園四季の道」, a green “S” that cuts through the drab Shinjuku cityscape. It was built in 1974 following the removal of the Toden streetcar. See: From train to tree: Golden Gai, Toden streetcar, and Shinjuku Promenade Park
