Otaru is a "city of slopes" located 40 km northwest of Sapporo and facing the west coast of Hokkaido.

A picturesque city in itself, it is surrounded on three sides by mountains with the sea at its front.
Created initially as a then vital port town during the development of Hokkaido, the waterways and chic western-style buildings that were once constructed still remain to an extent and the former warehouses along the old canals and waterways have now been transformed into museums and shops, all of course welcoming of tourists.
