Rediscover Historic Otaru by Boat – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Otaru’s turn of the century-style townscape is a uniquely inspiring sight, especially when seen from atop the canal. Visitors to the area should take a relaxing cruise during the day time to appreciate the city’s iconic architecture and learn about its history from the cruise captains. For the romantics out there, the canal’s nighttime cruises are a perfect opportunity to snuggle close as the boat floats quietly across the water, lit only by the faint glow of gas lamps.
