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.

travel around Hakodate by tram is very easy way you should do. Hakodate has only 2 tram lines, number 2 and number 5. The fare is between 210 and 250 yen, depend on the distance. The fare will show on the bus indicator board in the tram. also you could buy tram pass at tourist center at Hakodate Train Station.... More

We had a wet day so hopped on the tram from end to end to sight see as it was rainy weather all day. Grab a ticket when hopping on and the number on the screen matches with your ticket telling you how much at the end of your trip.

It is the most convinient way to explore hakodate using the tram. The tram stops at each touristic destination and has a clear sign.

I bought one-day pass and visited Motomachi area on the last day in Hakodate. The trams run frequently from early morning till late at night and the routes are simple. I recommend to buy tram's one-day pass (600JPY as of Jan 2015) If you visit many different places. Sometimes it's more conveninent to move in the city with one-day pass... More
