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.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Sun): browse the eclectic array of goods at Sankaku Market, make a trip to JR Otaru Station, steep yourself in history at The Site of Temiya Line, then contemplate the waterfront views at Otaru Canal, then snap pictures at Asakusa Bridge, and finally get in on the family fun at Otaru Denuki Koji.

For traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Otaru road trip planner.
