Quiet Walk at Otaru

Otaru, a port city on Hokkaido (Japan’s northernmost island), lies northwest of Sapporo on Ishikari Bay. Completed in 1923, the Otaru Canal, running through the city’s center, is lined with cafes and shopping centers in converted old warehouses. Nearby, Sakaimachi Street offers seafood restaurants as well as glass and sweet shops. The city is known for glassworks, music boxes and sake distilleries.
