Travel Tips for Otaru
Otamoi Loop Cruise
The cruise to see the offshore cliffs of Otamoi take about 45 minutes.
The sea was especially rough on my trip and I was a little concerned. Although you can take refuge from the blasting winds below deck, nothings beats having the cold winds in your face whilst you rock in the middle of the sea and gazing enrapturedly at the craggy cliffs and rocks jutting out from the sea.
Robberjak's Otaru Page
I live here in Otaru and its a great wee city. It's just 35 minutes from Sapporo and by the sea. We have fantastic skiing in winter and can swim in the sea over summer. Otaru has two sister cities - Nahodtka in Russia, and Dunedin in New Zealand where we come from. I have travelled the Pacific Rim and lived in Hiroshima, Japan, and various other cities in New Zealand. I hope you are able to use the information I can give you about Otaru. Here's a photo I took of our canal in December 2000. Cheers
