excellent value for money, and the seats are heated in winter. The trams go to most of the places on the tourist trail so well worth the 1 or 2 day passes

We took the tram everyday during our stay at hakodate as this is the most convenient public transport in hakodate for locals and tourists. We used the iocca card for easy travel as this is accepted in japan and Hokkaido.

One of the unique and better ways to get around in Hakodate... Brings you from the Bay of Hakodate & Mount Hakodate all the way to the Yunokawa Station where you can visit the Monkeys in Onsen at the nearby Hakodateshi Nettai Botanical Gardens...

Ride the tram in Hakodate! It's fun, convenient and lets you see the city in a fun way! There are one day passes for just the tram alone or day passes if you want a combo of the tram & bus.

A great second option to the bus - a very easy to use and understand tram. Overhead announcements are multiple languages and it’s very easy to use. You can cover some good distance with this very cheap and easy option for transport inside the city.

Like normal bus...u board from the back doors and alight from the front. 1 day pass can be bought on the tram when u alight. Tram stops are conveniently located along many sightseeing places which makes it easy for tourists.
