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 18th (Fri): look for gifts at Otaru Music Box Museum Main Building, see the interesting displays at Otaru Museum, Bank of Japan, thenobserve the fascinating underwater world at Otaru Aquarium, thenbrush up on your knowledge of spirits at Nikka Whisky Yoichi Distillery, and finally make a trip to JR Otaru Station. Here are some ideas for day two: browse the eclectic array of goods at Sankaku Market, contemplate the long history of The Site of Temiya Line, don't miss a visit to Asakusa Bridge, don't miss a visit to Otaru Canal, thenget in on the family fun at Otaru Denuki Koji, and finally take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt.Tengu.
