This tram system is the main mode of transportation for visitors to Hakodate without a car. It's reminiscent of the San Francisco cable cars without the hills and stops near all the main tourist attractions. Although not widely publicized, you can use your IC cards...More

We bought one day pass yesterday and used the street car down to Cape Tachimachi first, then up to Goryokaku, back down to our hotel. The street car is very convenient, always on time.

Trams run often and take you close to most tourist sites. Best value is with one-day pass you can buy from driver. Destinations are announced but in noisy tram they’re hard to hear. Best to keep track of stops on map.

If you have the intention to take 3 rides or more in a day, do buy the day pass at 600yen (can be purchases at Hakodate JR station). Each ride will cost 200-250yen depending on distance. Do enter the tram from the back door and...More

One-day pass can be bought from the tram driver. The tram covers most of Hakodate's main attractions. Fast, smooth and very convenient.

Our cruise ship recently stopped in this eminently forgettable town. Don't get me wrong, the place was spotless (no graffiti anywhere) and the people were polite an friendly, but there is nothing o interest here. For 600 yen an adult can ride this tram all...More

Got a day pass from the Tour Info Center which enabled me to travel around Hakodate on trams, it was a good experience travelling on old trams.

On time and very polite service! You can see all around the town and go to many signature places with Hakodate streetcar. Worth it!!!

Should be about a 20 minute walk if my memory is correct or an easy cab ride if some explains to the driver

Not so far, 200-300 m, if you mean bay loop cruise ship (nice views etc). But if you mean ferry (to Aomori, for example) then, there is no tram stop around. Only by bus or car/taxi.

Hi, Is the pass sold anywhere else other than the Hakodate station? Can the pass be bought and not used on the same day? Thank you. AV

According to the Hakodate tourist website, you can also buy from tram drivers and some hotel desks - but I did not try doing this.
