Love the tram system. Able to go several tourist spots. Very convenient and affordable. Opted for one day pass which is about 600 yen and you do not have to worry about the fare that you have to pay. Just need to flash the pass.

Buy 1 day tram ticket at store in front of the tram station. If you're lucky you'll enjoy tram with the wood floor.

Cheap and convenient way to get around the city. The tram system is well connected to almost all the main attraction spots. It is cheaper to buy a tram day pass if you travel more than 3 rides a day.

The Tram system in this city passes most of the interesting areas of the city. It is efficient, comfortable and economic, for both citizens and tourists.

Good way to get around the city and inexpensive if you buy the multiple ride tickets. Not sure but think the teams are from the 50's

We used the tram to get to and from our hotel, the day pass at 600 yen is value and allows you get around. Quaint but nice transport, easy access.

We did not know how the tram worked until we got to the tram stop, its really easy. You board the tram by the middle (back) door and take a ticket as you enter, the ticket will have a number. If you then look to the front of the back of the tram you will see a board with numbers... More

Make sure you get a tram pass when you arrive at JR Hakodate! You can pick one up at the travel information centre, or if you forget, tell the tram driver that you want "day pass". Told him "tram pass" and he didn't understand, finally he understood "day pass". The pass are like those scratch and win tickets, so make... More

Tram rides are a real treat these days and often many are found in japan. The Hakodate one is a short tram circuit and doesn't circle so be sure to know which direction you are going (compared to the Sapporo one which goes in a loop). Fares are paid in board or buy a tourist day pass for 600 yen... More
