The steam clock is also a very interesting place. The steam can often see the eruption of smoke. The structure of this huge clock is also very beautiful. The structure of the whole area is also very unique. I like some of them here. Design to visit.
The Otaru Steam Clock is located in the city center by the sea, facing the famous Otaru Music Box Museum, there are many European-style cottages nearby, and there are many desserts and gift shops on the street, which is very exciting. The steam clock is said to be made by Canada and is the world's largest watch of its kind. It is worth waiting to listen to the steam whistle music that can be played through steam.
Searching for Ctrip's review "Steam Clock", I found that there are two options, one is in Canada and the other is in Otaru. In fact, these two steam clocks can be said to be the same model. This one from Otaru was also made by Canadian watchmakers. It is made of bronze and is 5.5 meters high and 1 meter wide. It is said that the music will be played every 15 minutes, but we go in and out and always miss the time it plays, so it is not clear whether it is pleasing or not. In the music box hall inside, there is also a mini version of the steam bell music box on sale.
The famous steam clock is at the entrance of Otaru Music Box Hall. If you walk from Minami Otaru Station, it will be closer. We walked all the way from Otaru Canal, Whistle Hall, LeTAO, and finally to the Music Box Hall. At this time the snow was very heavy and it was already dark. If it is daytime, or on a sunny day, such a building should be beautiful. This is one of the few remaining steam clocks in the world, with a sense of history and significance. The steam clock will beep on the hour, and there will be wisps of steam from the top of the head, which is very interesting, but unfortunately there is no time to take it, the snow is too big to hold the camera. I think I will definitely come to Otaru to make up for my regrets.
One of the landmarks of Otaru, our family is waiting by the steam clock, wanting to hear its punctual roar. As a result, it took too long to wait, which is a pity. There are a lot of people taking pictures around, after all, the surrounding buildings are too distinctive, the red bricks and white snow, beautiful!
