What is a rickshaw?
A rickshaw is a vehicle designed to transport people with human power. In Japan, it was mainly used as a means of transportation from the Meiji era to the early Taisho and early Showa eras, but is still used at sightseeing spots.
The first rickshaw used for sightseeing Hida Takayama in was 1970.
