Otaru

3.4

Town of Hills

The port city of Otaru has long attracted domestic visitors, drawn in by the city's many historic buildings, and has started to garner international attention, too. The canals that work their way inland are still dotted with old warehouse buildings, now converted into leading sushi restaurants, shops, and restaurants. Music boxes and glasswork represent two major cultural exports of the city, once known primarily for its herring. Nowadays, however, the chance to see artisans at work and musicians at play stands out as a highlight of any visit to Otaru. Our Japan trip planning site combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
