Hokkaido 2 北海道
We left our hotel early at 7:00 am for a whole day of outing, and returned at 7:00 pm. A long day and long story.
It was light drizzling in the morning but we went to visit the famous Otaru Canal, an old cannal built hundred years ago and attracted million of tourist yearly.
We went up to Tenguyama (Tengu Hill) to have a great view of the city.
Today we explore the coastal area around Otaru and visited many famous tourist spots.
We were attracted by the fresh and reasonable of the sea food, decided to cook our seafood dinner. We bought fresh scallops, salmon fish, octopus.... We bought a rice cooker to cook them !!
We walked a lot...climb many hills .... we went to see many beautiful rock formations along the coastlines.
Thank God for the cool weather ... and little rain, we have a wonderful day in Otaru!
Too tired to write some more, please see many more pictures in FACEBOOK.
