Shiro-kuma, Kuro-buta

Kagoshima has one specific tram system, with cars decorated in a wide variety of designs. Most are product, service or company advertising. A few are rolling PSAs, and some promote city events. So, if there is a particular car that catches your eye, the odds of seeing it again are kind of low. Plus, unless they're waiting for the street light to change, they don't stay in one place long enough to get good photos of them.

This is Kuro-buta/Shiro-Kuma (Black Pig/White Bear). I'm not sure why it has this particular combination. I'd guess that it's because of two of Kagoshima's more popular local products - black-hair pigs, and Shirokuma-brand shaved ice deserts.
