After a long drive, we finally arrived in Otaru just in time for lunch. After checking in at our Minshuku, we walked to a nearby famous restaurant, Naruto Chicken.

One of the best fried chicken I had in years. Surprisingly, Kaisen donburi went very well with the chicken also.  
After a hearty lunch, we started walking towards Otaru canal.

The city had many old colonial buildings and architectures. Otaru, especially the canal area, had many tourists wandering about. We sat under the shade and watched the tourists taking selfies and group photos.

After dropping by Otaru beer hall for some thirst quenching, we walked up towards the station to check out some more colonial architecture.

We kept walking around until we arrived at the station. I was surprised at how small the main parts of the city were.

We came back down to Otaru canal for some late night shots. Afterward, we went up towards the Otaru old railroad and found a bar there.

For breakfast, we headed out to Kamaei Factory store. Their fishcakes and bread rolls were very good. After a hearty meal of fried fish cakes, we were on the road again heading towards Shakotan.

We made a stop at Cape Shakotan for some fresh Uni Donburi and also to check out the cape itself. We had to walk under a tunnel and down a long pathway towards the rocky beach.
