visit Nikka Whiskey in Yoichi and explore nostalgic and picturesque port city Otaru


This is a tour to Yoichi and Otaru from Sapporo.
We first visit Yoichi Nikka Whiskey Distillery and take a look at a factory still in operation, followed by free sample tasting.
Then we go back to Otaru and explore Otaru canal, the relics of once flourished Northern Wall Street area that is a thriving shopping district now.
Otaru is also famous for seafood and sweets, please try them.
If you are interested, I can take you to Tanaka Syuzo Kikkogura Celler to learn how to make Japanese sake at the end of the tour.

The transportation to Yoichi is not very frequent. So we will take bus from Sapporo to Yoichi.
You can surely secure seats but takes longer to transport.
I am happy to talk with you about transportation ways.

We have lunch in Otaru.
We will visit Otaru canal, then glass shops, music box shops, and sweets shops, samurai goods shop, too.
We will come back to Sapporo by public transportation.

I can customize the tour especially for you to suit your schedule and requests.
