Explore Otaru and Sapporo and enjoy local food


This full day tour starts and ends at Sapporo. This tour is perfect for visitors who are staying in Sapporo. Let's take a quick look around Otaru and Sapporo. In the past Otaru City was one of the biggest cities in Hokkaido. Now Otaru is a popular tourist destination. It is famous for Otaru Canal, stone warehouses, glass shops, Music box shops, confectionery shops, Herring Mansion and so on.
Sapporo has become the fifth largest city in Japan, as the first Commissioner of the Hokkaido Development Commission predicted in 1869. Sapporo is a very popular city to live in, and is loved by both Japanese people and foreigners. This tour includes visiting the major sightseeing spots related to the birth of the city of Sapporo. I am looking forward to viewing the scenery with you, and to talking with you about the city of Otaru and the uniquely planned city of Sapporo. I can customize this tour especially for you. I can also offer a private taxi tour depending on your request. See you soon!
