    Opened in 1999, this market place consists of 25 specialty stores of professional connoisseurs and craftsmen. Popular among the people of Otaru as well as tourists, Shin Nantaru Market is a place where food from Hokkaido ranging from fresh fish to processed goods such as seafood, meat, fruit and vegetables can all be found. Plenty of good-quality food can be bought at reasonable local prices, and the media can often be found here. There’s also a dining hall in the market where you can get some sushi or a bowl of rice topped with plenty of fresh seafood. The nearest station is Minami-Otaru Station.

Hokkaido Areas


Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago.

Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
