Once a vital part of the city's bustling port, Otaru Canal serves as a popular destination for waterside strolling and enjoying the outdoors. Wander along this restored historic canal, dating back to the early 20th century, to explore its many repurposed warehouses, which house restaurants, shops, and museums. You'll find the promenade lined with Victorian-style gas lamps, as well as numerous brick buildings from as early as the 19th century. Put Otaru Canal and other Otaru attractions into our Otaru travel itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It is hard to go for lunch and take a photo in front of the Canal. Too many tour buses, are crowded with people. I want to come to when you have a little quiet atmosphere at night. Foreign tourists quite often during the day, and the students do not is at all uncomfortable with the. (Wry smile)

  • Fantastic tourist spot. A must to visit when you are in Otaru. You can slowly strolling along the canal or sit down and relax on the bench. Imagine different season view of this place. How lovely!
