The most special place to visit is the river, 4 different season, with 4 different view.
Before I talk into deep Otaru station, lets go to the wet market which is just left hand side of the Otaru Station Exit. Right after you exit from the Otaru station, you can see the wet market.
What is so special at this wet market?
This is one of the main reason I am here...Hokkaido. The same crab from Tokyo or Osaka can cost you even more! the crab is cold, very cold. They live in a cold water condition. And not aggressive at all. But I was afraid~ haha
This 7 layer ice cream combine all the 7 different taste. During the summer it become shorter as the hot weather will melt the ice cream fast. If during the winter, they can make the ice cream even taller!
Otaru Steam Clock Tower. This steam clock was a gift from Vancouver to Otaru and well-known as the symbol of the city in Otaru, Hokkaido, Japan. When the clock is point to sharp AM (for eg 3pm, 4pm) you can see the smoke appeared on top of the clock tower, with song!
As overall, Otaru is a really nice place to visit. I love it and love it. Love the food and place.
Otari has port too, wish one day I can take the cruise from somewhere else and drop by at Otaru!
