This restored early 20th-century streetcar recreates the first trams operating in Hokkaido out of Hakodate in 1913. The stylish streetcar makes three runs a day on Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays between April and October. Its name in Japanese, Haikara-Go, refers to the “high collars” of Western fashion imported in the Meiji era (1868-1912) which ended up as a catch-all phrase for fancy and modern in this period. The red and white exterior transports you back in time while the nostalgic interior, with its wooden walls and rattan straps, offers a unique photo opportunity. The ticket stub makes a perfect souvenir of your Haikara-Go trip, so make sure to take it home with you!
