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.

I spent two days in Hakodate in October 2017 and used the tram extensively. Sure, I'll admit to being an enthusiast but the Hakodate tram is of interest to general tourists because it's both something of a time warp (as mentioned on most other reviews)...More
