In other Japanese cities I have visited (including Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Matsuyama and Toyama), I have really enjoyed travelling on their extensive streetcar (tram) networks. Don't get me wrong; Sapporo trams are equally enjoyable ..... there's just not enough of them! Confined to a single loop line to the SW of the city centre, Sapporo's network amounts to a total of 24 stops in the loop with trams running in both clockwise and anticlockwise directions.
I got the opportunity to travel on the tram when visiting Mt. Moiwa Ropeway which involves taking the subway to Susukino subway station (N08 on the Namboku Line), interchange with the tram at street level then transfering to the Ropeway shuttle bus at Ropeway Inguchi tram stop. A fixed fare of Y200 per journey, you pay as you exit from the door at the front of the tram.
Wonderfully retro .... I wish there was a more extensive network!

Took the tram from JR Hakodate Station to Goryokaku Tower. It was easy to use the tram as the following destination would be displayed on the screen both in Japanese and English so just watch out for your destination. When you enter from the rear door just take a ticket from the machine and once you reach your destination, just look at your number on the ticket and match with the price that you have to pay on the screen. Many locals use the tram too and the trams are frequent but you must put your mobile on silent mode.

If you're not familiar at first, aboard the tram, Collect the ticker from the ticket machine , then when you alight at your destination, pay the correct amount inside the box . In overall, a nice way of commuting around area if you.re too tired walking from one point to another

This is such a great circle tram line, it is easy to use and the trams are very frequent. The price is a fixed 170 yen regardless of how far you travel, so you could just sit and go around the entire line for the same price. you can catch it to go to the main food areas, as well as My Moyia. The tram does get very busy during the peak times as it is also used by locals.

The best way to get to the ropeway cablecar. You can't miss the stop as announcements are made in English.

Great mode of alternate transportation to explore the other side of Sapporo town.

Connecting you from Odori to Mt. Moiwa, Sappora Med Uni to Toyohiragawaryokuchiya Baseball Field.

Riding the tram during peak hours, not recommended for toddler, gives you experience of the local culture.

If you are commuting the subway the whole day, you might want to consider getting the daypass which includes the Shiden.

The Tramway is a great way to get about the city if you want to see any of the attractions on its route. It travels in a rectangular route continuously so you can go in either direction to get to your destination.

Try to get a day pass if you are there during weekend! it such worth for value. But bear in mind, it will stop exactly at 11.00pm no matter what. for example, 11.00pm on the dot, current station is 5th on the route and yours is 12th; you have to get down and its your own business to get to your destination station!

I took the tram a couple of times around Sapporo City and it was so much fun. It took a bit more than an hour to complete the 'loop' and I highly recommended it. The trams were on time and they had a few stops at the tourists spots: Ropeway, Susukino...etc
