It is convinient for you to go aroun in Hakodate. If you take this train, Hakodate-shiden, you can also enjoy the scenery of Hakodate city. The trains are cute.:D

The tram creeps along. You would be faster by bicycle. But it's a nice way to trundle around and see a wider expanse than you would be willing to walk.

The tram will take you close to many of the main sites in Hakodate. Get the day pass for ¥600. Totally worth it.

The tram service was a good way to travel around Hakodate, however they were very noisy, as in wheels scratching on the rails, making it hard to hear any commentary. Maybe we are spoilt as we come from Melbourne where the trams are pretty quiet as they move.

It's such a small town in Sapporo. You can find many interesting places here. Nice weather and good view. Not only Mt.hakodate only the road also beautiful.

This tram reaches all the attractive and most visited places, with one day ticket that cost you only Y 600. Tram frequency is high enough, never let you wait more than 5 minute during daytime.

We bought the one day pass which allowed us to hop on hop off as much as we wanted. We found the routes easy to understand and all got us to within easy walking distance of the sights we wanted to see. Be aware that you get on at the back and exit from the front. It got quite crowded... More

Like any other transportation in japan, The rides were extremely quiet. Comfortable and clean cushion seats and ride led by very patient drivers. A good way to discover Hakodate.

A nice way to get around town. There are some nice historic cars as well. At least worth a couple photos.

I must admitted, both of us didn't like walking too much as it's quite windy and temp around 5 degrees at night, So bus is a better option for us, but the tourism center will promote more of the street car (tram). We paid for 2 day pass for both tram and bus as one. Only to realize not all... More
