Tram accessibility for wheelchair

We are traveling to Hakodate with our kid on wheelchair. Aware that the best way to get around the city is by its Shiden, as it connects to most of the spots. But wonder is shiden accessible to people with disabilities? If not, are there any recommended mode of transport?

Thank you.

Hakodate Streetcar seems to be not friendly with wheelchair.

Consider to take a loop bus"Motomachi bayarea Shu-yu-go".

Hakodate Tram uses mostly old-fashioned tramcars which has deep steps to climb. There's a few barrier-free new trams are running though, I couldn't find any schedule.



This website give you some information on wheelchair travel in downtown Hakodate. There seems more bus services accommodated for wheelchair travellers than tram.
