Sapporo’s tram network has reduced much than before. Once it had 8 routes, and then reduced to 6 routes in 1971, and today, only one circular route remained. One route has converted to metro route, others were simply closed.

Automobile booming after WWII and during sixties, most tram systems were closed in Japan, like USA, UK and Canada, and some were replaced by metro. Although still now Japan has the most tram cities in Asia, but the future is not bright. Recently some modern low-floor rolling stocks introduced.

Where is the tram depot situated?

This is map of its heyday.

There was also a massive difference - Sapporo built a large subway system with three lines that covered distances far faster than the trams. The legacy tram network was ineffective and is still rather inefficient compared to the subway. Given the subway started to open in the 70s (last extension was in 1999) it is far better suited for the city than the old tram network.

In fact areas with tram routes that where closed are already served by a subway station nearby. In fact Sapporo might be one of the more logical ones only closing tram lines once a subway replaces them. That is why the circular tram route to the southwest remains, there is no subway replacement created yet.

Also, the Sapporo subway system could operate (for the most part) without having to deal with the very snowy winters normal in Sapporo. I've seen videos of the constant maintenance the Sapporo tram system must do to keep the line operating in winter--it's a LOT of work for a relatively short system.
