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.

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.

Just simple 2 lines of tram,passing most tourist attractions,you can explore most of Hakodate. Hopping off from tram you just walk few minutes to each attraction. Starting from 210 Yen,not so expensive,or paying one-day ticket for repeated use. Convenience and viewing around city area,is a worth way to do.

It's an easy way to get around, I used it a couple of times to visit some other parts in town, and than the tramway is a convenient way to get around. It's quit cheap, you get the ticket out of the dispenser located at the entrance, and you pay the fee with the driver. easy and fast.
