What travelers say:

Nice view with traditional Japanese atmosphere. I went there in April 2019, the weather was warm (upto 26-28C during day time) Stayed in Otaru for 2 nights, so I can see the different views during daytime and night time. Like Otaru Canal very much, the canal, fresh air and the view seems liked bring you back to 100 years ago. Wanted to go again in Winter time, must be a very different scenes.

Additional Information


Otaru Canal was built in the Meiji and Taisho periods, and although only half has been preserved, it is still full of charm. The Victorian-style kerosene lamps and the red brick exterior walls of the riverbank warehouses add an exotic feel to the place. Restaurants, grocery stores, and other shops are converted from warehouses and are popular choices at which tourists can buy souvenirs or eat local delicacies.
