Riding the tram is an activity unto itself. Get a one-day pass for ¥600 and get yourself around town like a local. Great fun.

Very cheap public transportation, an unique experience, you can get to all interesting places ... We liked it being in the tram with people living in Hakodate, students ,old people or people doing their route to and from their jobs... If you like local experience, the tram every day is what you are looking for!

With the 1-day tram (¥600) or 1-day tram & bus pass, you can visit all the most popular tourist attractions and restaurants. It issue fairly frequent. The drivers are all nice and help you with payment when you get off. The stops are announced in English, bust the announcement issue sometimes lost in the tram noises.

The tram is impressively antique but highly functional. There is a change machine at the front of you need to break your 1000 bills to give exact change

Arrived by cruise ship and purchased a day pass on the tram. Easy to understand system with intersecting lines explained. Lots of locals use it and it is usually busy.

Not only it takes you to historical places in the city, it is also sweet at comfortable. Even if you don|t ride it, I doubt there is any tourist in Hakodate, who didn't take picture of this old-fashioned tram.
