What people are saying:

How can you not come to Otaru when you come to Hokkaido~ The romantic city, the mecca of love! Considering the inconvenience of moving luggage around in winter, I plan to come here for a half-day tour! Walking hand in hand with my husband on the streets of Otaru, so romantic~ Winter is the peak season. Although there are many people, it is very atmospheric. In fact, Hokkaido is very suitable for visiting all year round, next time I want to check in in summer! From Sapporo to Otaru by JR, it was super fast, just by looking at the snow scene.

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.
