Great way to see the city. Connects you to majority of the sights. They are comfortable & economical if you get the all day pass. It may be old but well taken cared off & rides perfectly. Great to see the city maintain this heritage.

A quaint way to see the town, if you're short on time. I find trams a throwback to simpler times and marvel that some places still have them. Ride it for the experience.

It's great to see this trams move around the city and a treat to ride them. Worth even a short ride through the centre of town.

Walked from Smile Hotel in Hakodate and took the Tram through the town. It had a retro feel to it. The driver was very helpful.

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.
