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

The Hakodate street tram is an easy mode of transportation to get around Hakodate and to visit all the tourist attractions. It’s a nice slow ride to take in the atmosphere of Hakodate. For easy, reference, here are the tourist attractions and the nearest street tram station according to my own research and experience - Hakodate Ekimae : Hakodate Morning... More

The drivers were so helpful despite the language barrier. Its fun riding the tram, further more you may not find it in other countries unlike bus. Make sure you enter thru the back door and collect the ticket before getting down thru the front door and pay for your fares.
