Hankyu Corporation: A Leading Private Railway Company's Business Model

 

Hankyu Corporation in Osaka, Japan's second largest metropolitan area, has successfully increased ridership by using diversified business strategies along their railway lines; from developing residential areas and amusement parks, to constructing a new university building and establishing the famous all-female Takarazuka Revue. See how Hankyu maintains its strong brand image with unique strategies like this, and skillfully refurbishes their old cars inside and out into new, high quality trains.

Oh this episode could be interesting.  The show is becoming so Kanto/Tokyo concentric that it getting on the verge of boring recently.

Hankyu is important for not only railroading history, but Japanese history itself. Its founder, Ichizō Koyabashi, created a scheme to build homes along Hankyu rail lines, a scheme that proved wildly successful. And Koyabashi created the all-female Takarazuka Revue, one of the most famous live performance troupes in Japan. Hankyu's very success inspired another industrialist, Keita Gotō, to do the same thing southwest of central Tokyo along Tokyu rail lines.

I like that a woman is recording the concert with a tape recorder at around 23:00. Retro!

Advanced Urban Travel: Japan's Monorail Systems

 

1957 saw the opening of Japan's first monorail. 60 years on, Japan is a world leader in monorail technology with 9 lines currently in operation covering a distance of 100km. In this program, we take a look at how monorails have become an increasingly popular mode of urban transportation; the unique characteristics and comparative benefits of both straddle and suspended monorail systems; and Japan's well-established monorail technology which has been gaining attention all over the world.

It looks they are doing a few repeats, today's was the Keihan Railway which I'm sure I've seen before back in March (its the one with the EMU that has the centre seats come down from the roof)

Interesting, I wonder if the Naha monorail will be mentioned.  It actually seemed to be well used when I visited in '15.
