You can sit in the tram to enjoy the street view of Hakodate. It is a very unique and special tram as it is still in a very vintage design.

There are a few different types of trams or street cars in Hakodate and we rode all of them. They are very nostalgic and kind of noisy they way it used to be. Price is cheaper than a taxi and they cross all over town.

Not so far, 200-300 m, if you mean bay loop cruise ship (nice views etc). But if you mean ferry (to Aomori, for example) then, there is no tram stop around. Only by bus or car/taxi.
