convenient tool to travel around the city

The tram is convenient tool to travel around the city and the on day pass at 600 yen is also a bargain.

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

When boarding the tram, take a ticket near the door. As your travel the computer screen in front will show u where u are, what's the next stop, and the fare (Japanese buses are... More

I had a day pass for the tram and went to Goryokaku for dinner. I tried to catch the tram back to the Hakodate station area around 7pm, only to find out that it stopped at 6:15pm that night! This information came from a driver going in the opposite direction, who got off the tram and 'told' us there were... More

The tram takes you to all the major landmarks and attractions in Hakodate. You collect the ticket from the ticket dispenser when you get on the tram. When you get to your stop, hand over the ticket to the tram driver and pay the fare. Recommend to buy the day pass if you plan to take at least 3 tram... More

With their route alignment it's sensible to take a day pass on this tram and hop on off. Most places are 3-10 mins walk from the closest stop. At the very least it's a great way to see large part of Hakodate if u r short on time. Choose a hotel enroute will make this even better experience.

Great route alignment covering most tourist spots. It's great if u intend to travel independently. Get the day pass and avoid the hassle on coins scramble upon exit.

When you get on the tram, take the small ticket ejected out of the machine. There's a number on it and you can look at the board to find your number and see how much you gotta pay when you get off. If you do not have enough change, either put a 1000yen note or a 500yen coin into the... More
