Otaru is a port city located in the middle of the west coast of Hokkaido. One side of the city faces the Sea of Japan and the other three sides face the mountains, and part of the coast is included in the Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Coast National Park. The climate is relatively mild with little difference in temperature, and you can enjoy the rich nature throughout the four seasons.
From the end of the Edo period to the Meiji period, the herring fishery flourished in Otaru, and its prosperity laid the foundation for the Otaru economy, which was called the “Wall Street of the North. The retro and romantic Otaru Canal, which still retains the glory of those days, is a popular tourist spot. Please also pay attention to the rich food culture such as sushi and sweets.
