This is a walking tour with a professional guide recommended for those who are visiting Otaru for the first time. On this tour, you’ll enjoy Otaru’s nostalgic charm and gourmet gems. 

The tour starts at Otaru Station, and covers the main attractions of the city center as you stroll along with a local guide. Your guide recommends spots that only a local would know. Otaru is an old, prosperous town in Hokkaido founded on trade, is now a popular tourist destination for many tourists both from Japan and abroad, and pairs well with a visit to the nearby Sapporo.

The tour follows the landscape of the Ishikari Bay, upon which the Otaru port faces outward, and also introduces you to the nostalgic atmosphere of Otaru Canal, Sakaimachi Street and the “triangular market,” with its freshly caught fresh seafood, fruits, and delicious sweets on display.

In addition, Suitengu (loosely translated as “water shrine”) will be visited at the end of the tour. This is a recommended scenic spot by local people, in a calm and quiet hillside part of the city, commanding a panoramic view over the Port of Otaru. Since the road up to Suitengu from Sakaimachi Street (known as “Foreigner Slope” due to its history) has 123 steps, visitors that are confident stair climbers should by all means take the challenge!
