Otaru Canalside Glass Factory....
Otaru Canalside Glass Factory. I put this here because I usually avoid such activities as too touristy but I really enjoyed the time I spent here. It was off-the-beaten path for me. The Glass Factory has about four floors, there’s the basement where you can blow glass, the next couple of floors houses merchandise, and the upper floor is the workshop. The staff can help you make just about anything your heart desires. The top floor has an observatory. Make sure to take a look at the beautiful glass traditonal tea set (which looks amazingly similar to the traditional ceramic sets)!! 0134-29-1112
A beautiful evening....I missed the yellow balloons.
The Singapore Tourist Promotion Board should consider converting Rochor canal into something like this.
"The glass church"
The inside of the church which is often used for wedding. It has nothing to do with Christianity or as a place for worship....just a romanized notion of a "church" wedding, popularized by Hollywood, and religiously copied by many Japanese.
Still it was a beautiful place to behold.
The shopping belt of Otaru
An Old bank building
the Barber shop where I have my haircut for 2000 yen
the "octagon" fish" I had it for sashimi
Alaskan crab......for some reason I wasn't fond of it. I still prefer Singapore version of Black pepper crab
