Otaru Information

Otaru is an old port town called “Hilly Town“.

Famous sightseeing spots in Otaru are Otaru Canal and Sakai-machi Street, though I recommend “Wandering in the Town with no Plan”.
Go up a steep hill and look at the harbor, Go into a narrow alley and find an old buildings, Go around the town and listen to the sound of wind. So feel real Otaru.
