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.

The tram here does not run as frequently as the one in larger town. On the way back from mount Hakodate, it stop running at after 10 so I have to walk back to the hotel instead. Fortunately, it is just one station away. The day pass worth the price if you travel more than 3 times.

Use it for transportation but don't go out of your way for it. Very crowded and not unlike any other city tram

It is a very simple and easy way to get around Hakodate. You board from the rear entrance and take a ticket from the dispenser. You then wait until it is your stop and then walk to the front and insert your ticket along with the price displayed on the screen. You must pay in exact coins and there is... More

I was thinking that during rainy time i can sit in the tram and look around the city but i was disappoint because the window of the tram is close so the ventilation in the tram is very bad.

If there are new carriages we did not see them - our several rides were on ancient uncomfortable cars with glass so yellow you could barely see out. Badly in need of retiring them for an upgrade. The routes are quite useful for a traveller though.

This tram system has two lines (2 and 5). Between them, they get close to major tourist attractions, though about a 10-minute walk may be required at some stops. We bought a 1-day pass (Y600 per adult) and covered much of Hakodate, using this transport. I liked the tram's frequency, every 5 to 10 minutes, and the convenience of the... More
