Other old buildings
Favorite thing: When you walk in the center from the canal to the clock tower, you will see a variety of old buildings. The point is that they have a plate in front of them, so you can read what they are in English and Russian.
Great Sources of Information !!!!!!!!
Favorite thing: Some useful travel websites on Japan / Hokkaido :-

Otaru Museum. The museum is in...
Favorite thing: Otaru Museum. The museum is in a beautiful/historic building that was formerly a storage warehouse. Here you can see photos and artifacts from Otaru’s colorful past. The second building has a large collection of butterflies from the area. The museum provides a packet with English explanations. Best of all the admission is only 100\ (less than a US dollar).
If you have some extra tiem...
Favorite thing: If you have some extra tiem while waiting for the train visit Center(or Central) Market. It’s a covered shopping arcade near the station. There are quite a few interesting shops and the prices are very reasonable.
Meiji and Taisho era buildings
Favorite thing: Along the canal you find these one storey buildings. Unfortunately, I don't remember what is what. So just enjoy the photos.
