Ride with the locals and see the town in an old-school way. Was travelling during winter. It is best to ride compared to walk in the streets in the cold, although some tourist spots are walking distance. Get the day pass which is worth it if you know you will be travelling around the town for a full whole day.... More

I just have a few hours in Hakodate and walking was possible but time wasting on a cold day. Took the tram and got to the warehouses from JR Hakodate Train Station.

take a ticket as you enter from the back. it will show you the stop you got up from. once seated, you can look for the digital sign and calculate how much your bus fare is. otherwise, once you have reached your destination, simply show the bus driver your ticket and pay the exact amount.

Riding with the locals is always fun. Mix of modern and old, nostalgic trams. Enter from the back door and grab a ticket with your zone number. Watch the Board near the driver and it tells you your fare based on distance. When you exit from the front, insert your ticket and drop the exact-fare into the coin box. If... More

It's a really cool vintage team cars. Enter in the back to get tickets and pay when you exit in the front. Price range from 200-250 yen. Just a cool throwback to old times

The Hakodate Tram is a good way to get around Downtown Hakodate. It doesn't run to places away from downtown (most notably, you can't take the tram to any of the ferry terminals to Aomori). There are a few old trams that public transport buffs might enjoy riding.

Just a standard tram with limited route. Not integrated with main railways station for connecting. You would need to walk 10-20 minutes from the station to reach each popular objects.

The tram is not historical...it just ran in the mid city. We bought a day trip meaning you can travel as many as you like...

For tourists, advisable to purchase their day pass which give you unlimited ride in all their tram lines. Tram will bring you to most tourists spots and some nice little suburbs in Hakodate.

The tram is a good option to move around town. It will bring you to most of the tourist attractions. Hakodate downtown is a very walkable city so you will cover a lot of ground by hopping on and off the trams. Fares are between 210-260 Yen for a one-way ride. You can also get the 1-day unlimited rides ticket... More
