Description: Otaru is a port town located about half an hour northwest of Sapporo. From the early days of Hokkaido's colonization in the late 1800s, Otaru served as a major trade and fishing port. As the city was thriving from fishery for centuries, the most famous landmark in Otaru is the canal where they used to carry the fresh produce from the ocean to onland using tugboats. Many old warehouses and former office buildings of shipping and trading companies still sit in Otaru along the canal, creating a special mood, reminiscent of past decades. Its beautifully preserved canal area and nostalgic architecture make Otaru a pleasant day trip from Sapporo.


Others: For one day hire covering Noboribetsu, Lake Toya, Furano, Biei, and other nearby cities can also be arranged on request.
