This full day tour is perfect for first-time visitors. Let's take a quick look around Otaru and Yoichi. Otaru is a popular tourist destination. It is famous for Otaru Canal, stone warehouses, glass shops, Music box shop, confectionery shops, Herring Mansion and so on. Otaru Port served as the leading trading port in Hokkaido. In order to transport the goods efficiently, Otaru Canal was completed. The canal played a key role in transporting the goods to and from Hokkaido, for both domestic and international shipping. Due to the expansion of commerce, Otaru prospered as the trade and financial center of Hokkaido. Otaru Canal, Sakaimachi Street, Tanaka Sake Brewery Kikkogura are some of the sites we will visit together. We also visit Yoichi town. Yoichi is famous for its fruit in particular apples and the Nikka Whisky Yoichi Distillery. Let's explore Otaru and Yoichi together. I can customize this tour especially for you. I can also offer a private taxi tour depending on your request. See you soon!
