  • Didn't really come across this old railway info until we found it nearby our accommodation stay. Well preserved, but no big surprises. 
  • Railway was opened, the earliest in Hokkaido, but now is obsolete. Line still intact, were equipped with flower beds, benches, etc. It was like in a small park. I think that site visitors can enjoy walking and always different.

  • Cross and walk the street in front of the temiya line tracks. Continued lines are part of the road line followed over the left and right and the vestiges of the old leave the atmosphere. Head to the Otaru canal is to only stop along the way.
