I was lucky to ride perhaps one of older version of these Tram.
The floor was made by wooden planks, and immediately I got the impression to ride a piece of history, really enjoyable!
Trams in Hakodate are very easy to use, the on board ticketing system is very clever and efficient. You collect your ticket when you hop on it, and on the exit you put your ticket in the machine beside the driver and the fair is calculated. If you are a foreigner the driver will kindly assist you in any case.
On board you can have a lot of interesting meeting with local people, it is another trip inside of the traveling car. I personally enjoy this a lot. It's a way to enter in the Hakodate's private living room without specific invitation and start to try to melt in the environment. I personally love this.

Good experience to travel on this tram with my little kid as did not have the opportunity to travel in such "antic" transportation. Convenient to hop on and off as all the tram stations are near to hotels or sights. Do make sure you have enough change. If you don't have, need not worry as you may change the notes to coins before getting off the tram. the tram driver will be happy to help you on this.

Thankfully I read a bit before riding the Hakodate Tram. Here's what you need to know: Enter in the middle of the tram. If you will be paying cash, grab a ticket upon entering. If you'll be paying with an IC card (Pasmo, Suica, etc), just flash your card upon entering. When you know your stop is next, press one of the buttons on the wall to alert the driver. You'll exit through the front door by the driver. Drop your ticket in the machine and pay the fare via cash/coins -or- just swipe your IC card. Piece of cake!

Aside from that, the drivers are always extremely helpful and willing to assist. It's a fun, inexpensive, and efficient way to get around Hakodate. :-)

Great way to get around to main tourist spots, got a day pass which saved a bit of money and avoided the need to hunt around for change. Great for tourists
