  • Aoyama tolerable is are said to "Northern art Mansion" called herring Palace, built by big fisherman of herring fishing, Hokkaido's mansion. And twenty after the decline of herring that was originally built in the land of another, but, as was moved to its present location. We felt it was worth not attachment internal photography was prohibited, but glory of bygone days as reproduced came and went. Guide is a turnaround because we visited in groups it's think it is okay to watch about an hour from 30 minutes according to the information I have. It is within 1 year of the fishing season is around 3 months otherwise the playing and 暮seta. Standing in the garden of Ishikari elegy, Kitahara Milly, while West Rey pictures were exhibited.

  • Otaru Kihinkan, the old Villa Aoyama, was the first attraction we saw on our visit to Otaru. This building was constructed by a fishing magnate, is a mansion of luxury Japanese style with 18 rooms that we loved to learn and that brings you in a moment to a time of prosperity of this city. The entire construction is fantastic, exotic wood and with extraordinary decor. In addition, we could see his beautiful garden which surrounds the property. Visiting this mansion, it was evident that there was a large accumulation of wealth by merchants engaged in the business of fishing in the past in Otaru and that these so-called "Herring Mansions" are the most significant expression of this. The most interesting is the ground floor of the building, where the rooms are located. Visit to otaru Kihinkan, ancient Villa Aoyama, is one of the essential and recommended therefore if we get closer to this population. We visited her because I was within the attractions that we visited in a trip organized with guide, but it can be reached from Otaru station on bus number 10 or number 11 (20-25 minutes). It is five kilometers from the center of the city, close to Otaru Aquarium. Greetings to all travelers.
