Otaru Denuki-Koji Alleyway: Mixing with the Locals in Otaru – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Located across from Otaru Canal at the Asakusa Bridge intersection, “Otaru Denuki-Koji” is an alleyway full of food bars that were modeled around the image of colonial Hokkaido. Over 20 bars offer a wide variety of Japanese-style dishes and flavors made with carefully selected local ingredients. At nighttime, the glowing lanterns make for a nostalgic atmosphere. Why not grab a tasty bite at these cozy spots for a unique chance to mingle with the locals who often bar hop in the alleyway? While here, make sure to climb up the watchtower, the symbol of Denuki-koji, for glorious 360-degree panoramic views of the Otaru Canal!
