Hakodate's first tram line commenced operations in 1897. It became an electrified tram network later in 1913. After the operators changed for a few times, in 1943, Hakodate City Government took the lines under its control. A must ride when in this city. Not only is it a cheap and convenient way of getting around, the period tram cars immaculately... More

For 600 yen (all day unlimited pass) you can hit all the major tourist attractions in Hakodate. It has such a nostalgic feel to it. Don't PASS this one up. They only thing it didn't do was go to the top of Mt. Hakodate.

The Hakodate tram is the prefered method of travel for Hakodate locals so that says a lot. It gets you around the inner city and also out to the onsen areas quickly and efficiently.

I do mainly railway travel. This tram line is very good. Goes to the old historic areas and out to the hotel parts. It's a little pricey but they do have day pass which is cheaper. The tram yard is located out of the area. Holds a few old tram cars.

Best way to travel to every Hakodate tourist attractions if you do not have a car. You take the ticket from the machine when you get on and pay when you get off.

A must-try riding in an old tram. Remember to board from behind, collect the bus ticket from the small machine next to the door too. When it reaches your destination, alight from the front door, pass the ticket to the driver and pay.
