I am sure you have some questions on Hakodate in mind that you like to be answered.

The staffs there were all very friendly and knowledgeable.
Asked question like:
City map.
Major tourist spots.
The best way to to up the Hakodate Mountain
Bus timetable.
One day pass that covers both the tram and bus etc.
Recommending nearby popular seafooed / Ramen restaurant.

Those answers will save you a lot of time in planning the day.
I think Hakodate point of interests can be covered in 1day or at most 2 day, if you work out an efficient schedule.

If you on a tight schedule, visiting the tourist information center is one thing you should do. The local staffs know the city the best, your guide book information can be outdated.

We got alot of important information here as to how to go to where we wanted to go in Hakodate.

In particular, how to use the bus services just outside this train station.

As with all staff in all the tourists information centers in Japan , staff are very helpful & speaks English.

Located right at the train station with a beautiful tulips garden right outside. Staff are very helpful, and there are also shops and a 7-11 right outside the Info Center. We did our shopping there for lack of time, and we got all we needed.

A surprising delight was a resto on the second floor of the station, right after getting off the elevator is a ramen place. It serves so very good Chashumen (roast pork noodle soup), Japanese fried chicken and gyoza. You make your order in a vendor machine then you give your stub to a staff, and they serve food fast. Their gyoza was one of the best I've tasted all over Japan.
