In 2013 the Hakodate Tram system celebrated its 100yr anniversary. Originally established to connect the train station to the famous hot springs in the Yunokawa district, it is still fully functional . The fares range from 210-250 yen for adults and 110-130 yen for children for children for distances ranging from 4-7 kms. A tour of the old port city... More

Running at very short intervals the tram will take you where you want to go in Hakodate. We got some good advice from the young man at the tourist bureau at the JR station and used the tram all day to easily find what we were looking to see.

The tram/road train is a nice experience in Hakodate. It's easy to use, and a cool way to get around. However, the pricing system is weird. It costs 210 yen just to go one station, but if you ride all the way along the line it only goes up to 250 yen. For this reason, I'd suggest it is only... More

Serves well as a transport from point A to B with Japanese standards (good standards) but nothing extremely exceptional about it.

Rather than a tourist attraction in itself, this is a useful way to get around the major areas and attractions of Hakodate. It goes past Hakodate Station and out to Yunikawa Onsen as well as the Dock area. Usually you pay up to 250 Yen depending on distance travelled. Although not the quickest, it is quite reasonable.

A good mode of transportation when one is exploring the little quiet town of Hakodate. Stops at convenience places which makes it easier for a tourist to travel around

There were 12 of us in the group. We wanted to get to the Mt Hakodate ropeway station. So we took a 10 min stroll to the nearest tram stop and took the tram for about 3 stops down to Jujigai. Minimum fare was about 200 yen each. It was raining when we wanted to return so we hopped onto... More
