We were very excited to ride the Hakodate Tram and it is the best transport mode for appreciating the amazing views of Hakodate.

The well-established network connects the city, it runs every 6 to 12 minutes during the day and goes to most of the main tourist spots, including Hakodate Station, Motomachi, the Bay Area, Goryokaku and Yunokawa.

Fares cost between 210 to 260 yen, paid in cash when alighting.

We love the amazing Snaffle's Hokkaido Hakodate Chocolate Cheesecake. This is Japan No.1 Softest Melt In Your Mouth Catchcake!

You can purchase one day pass which costs JPY600 inside the Hakodate Station, just board the tram and show your day pass to the driver when you get off. You can go to most of the Hakodate's attractions with the tram, such as Goryokaku Park and Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse. It is really convenient!

Comfortable cars, 360 degree panaramic views. Ideal speed for passengers to assimilate their surroundings! When we took the ride, it was particularly spectacular because we left the beautiful autumnal trees of reds, oranges, yellows and passed over evergreen trees and then the trees at the top of the mountain were white with frost! An amazing sight!! At the summit the views are wonderful views all around you! This really is a trip worth taking!!

If you traveling free and easy on your own in Hakodate, it would be best to get a day pass for the tram which costs JPY600. Each tram trip would cost between JPY210-250 per adult per trip depending on distance traveled. So depending on how many times you would be hopping on and off the tram, you can calculate which is more worthwhile. And you don’t have to worry about coins to pay for every trip.

If you would like to hop between the bus and the tram, a day pass would cost JPY1000.

It is easy and convenient to move around by trams which run on a regular schedule. Check out the schedule at any of the tram stop.

Hop on the tram at the centre door and take a ticket as you board. Get off in front by giving the driver the ticket and paying the fare.

A good way to get around the city
Hop on using the centre door, and grab a ticket as you enter. The number on your ticket will indicate your fare on the screen inside the tram. When you need to get off, press the button and hand the ticket and correct change to the driver. There is also a change machine on the tram if you need coins. Easy!

Tram is my favorite public transportation to enjoy the city. You can see their city view, and easy to stop over in the tourist objects.

My 5 years old son enjoyed taking the tram in Hakodate. We took the tram to various sightseeing spots such as Mt Hakodate and the historical churches. For those who prefer cashless mode of payment, the SUICA card which is used for subway and trains in Tokyo can be used for this Hakodate tram too. If you plan to take the tram more than 2 times a day, it's more worthwhile to get the unlimited tram pass at 600 yen because each time you board the tram, it costs 210 yen to 250 yen.

The tram frequency is good, we did not have to wait too long. This is kind of similar to the tram in Hong Kong and most young kids love it.

We used our Suica cards to swipe in/out. Tram runs route of some of the major tourist destinations making it very convenient and inexpensive to use.

We took the tram to see the city. It will take you to most tourist stops.

Cheaper than driving.

Clean tram, comfortable ride and the wait for the tram is like 5 to 6 minutes.

Take the tram, it is a breeze. Safe your energy for other activities.

If you do not have an IC Card, then you take a ticket on boarding at the middle door and pay the display price when leaving by the front door. There is a change machine by the exit door for coins or 1000 yen notes. You cannot use the change machine at the other end without the driver being there. There is a pleasant mix of new and old trams.
