Travel Guide - Otaru Canal

InformationInformation

This area is Otaru's most popular tourist spot. The canal, 1,140 meters in length and 20 to 40 meters in width, built in 1923, was used to discharge cargo from a ship at Otaru Port, and it played an important role in the development of Otaru City. It takes about 30 minutes to walk all the way along the canal.
There is a collection of stone warehouses that retain their original appearance along the canal. Many have been made into restaurants and other establishments. In the evening the buildings are lit up with 63 gas lamps and present a scene completely unlike that enjoyed during the daytime.
