Hotels around the canal or Otaru Chikko Station

You want to go to the market the next morning. You enjoy going shopping while looking at seasonal seafood that you’ve never seen before. If this is you, we recommend that you stay in a hotel around the canal or Otaru Chikko Station.

Asarigawa Onsen

There must be a hot spring! If that’s you, come to Asarigawa Onsen. 30 minutes by bus from Otaru Station. There is a ski resort, a loop bridge, and Lake Otarunai. You will see a different side of Otaru. Following the back road, you will reach Jozankei. It’s a nice detour on the way back to Sapporo if you’re traveling by car.

The guest house is also popular

We also recommend the guest house for those looking to enjoy a private stay in a cozy lodge.
