Otaru Tourism: Best of Otaru

About Otaru
Once the flourishing trade centre of colonial Hokkaido, Otaru is characterized by its canal lined with old western-style warehouses. Today, the canal still bustles, but now it’s travellers as opposed to merchants who frequent the waterway; and the stone buildings that once stored goods now harbour museums, stores, and trendy eateries.
