  • A place great for photo taking without anyone else who buzzed. We are the only ones there taking pictures when we are there. However, its just a take photo and then drive off place as there is nothing...  more »
  • We joined a group tour and this is one of the stops where you get off to wander around a bit and take pictures. About 10 mins here is actually sufficient.  more »
  • I had time between meals, Otaru city strolling and sudden appearance of tracks. Read the signs and written hand Palace line site. Hokkaido's first railway opening section seems to be some. It had been running up to 0/1985. It is a nice walk.
