accessible info  :  JR Hokkaido  /  Hotel 
Hakodate city tram is partly accessible. There are some non-step trams and stations, but the number is limited.

  Hakodate Ropeway     

Fully wheelchair accessible. A lift takes visitors from the lobby to the platform. Wheelchair users can get on and off big flat gondolas. Enjoy the great night or sunset view of Hakodate. The ropeway station is located on a hill. Very hard for wheelchair users to go up the hill. Taking a taxi is the best way to go to the station if there is no no low floor bus.

  Morning Market     

Very famous and popular attraction for tourists. The morning market is located in front of Hakodate Station. It is open early from morning to  noon. Easy access from near hotels on foot. Seafood ( crab, squid, salmon, etc ), fruits, vegetables, and souvenirs are sold. Enjoy eating seafood bowls in restaurants. The floors are completely flat. 
     

  Motomachi     

There are many churches and historical buildings in Motomachi, but they are located on a hill. Walking up and down the hill is the main attraction. It is very hard for wheelchair users.  
  
 
  

  Bay Area 

The bay area is wheelchair accessible because there is no hilly road. Have a nice walk while feeling comfortable sea wind. In Red Brick Warehouse, wheelchair rental services are available. Many wheelchair toilets. 15 min on foot from Hakodate Station. Enjoy shopping and eating out.

  Onuma Park     

20km north of Hakodate. Nice lakes and forest. Most of the roads in the park are very flat. Steep ramps are placed on bridges. Although many trails are not paved and full of stones and trees, it is possible to enjoy adventure on wheelchairs. 14km cycling around lake by rental bike is so fun. JR Hakodate and Onuma Park Stations are both wheelchair accessible.
