    Hokkaido Otarushi Minatomachi 5-4
    You can find the ticket center and dock at the Otaru Canal Chuobashi Bridge located about a 10-minute walk from JR Otaru Station towards the port. You can enjoy the history and romance of Otaru City from the canal boat with cruises lasting about 40 minutes. With the gas-powered street lights along the canal, the night cruises are a beautiful sight to behold. During the cold winter a canopy covers the boat and heaters are provided to keep passengers warm.

    Hokkaido Yoichi-gun Akaigawamura Ochiai 478
    This dairy farm is located along National Route 393 in Akaigawa Village. The farm keeps their milk production process from raising dairy cattle to selling the final product entirely in-house. The farm’s shop sells items such as milk and soft-serve ice cream topped with homemade jam,

    We chanced upon this dairy shop enroute to Otaru from Noboribetsu, looking for washroom. After a quick trip using the shop's washroom, we decided to give ourselves a much deserved break before...

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
