Otaru is a small city and port on the island of Hokkaido, Japan, NW of the larger city of Sapporo. It faces on the west the Sea of Japan and mainland China. The original inhabitants were indigenous Ainu people. Otaru is for many a commuter town for Sapporo. With its many historical buildings, the city is a popular tourist destination. Otaru's prominent industries are arts and crafts, such as studio glass and musical boxes. About 4km west of the port is the Otaru Tenguyama Ropeway, an aerial lift line that climbs Mount Tengu (500m) to offer a panoramic view of the city.

Otaru is one of Japan's leading tourist destinations for locals, with nearby Mount Tengu a popular winter skiing destination. In summer the hot and balmy weather affords a pleasant opportunity to enjoy the local attractions. Beautiful Otaru canal, with Victorian-style street lamps and artists showing off their work, is lined by old warehouses transformed into shops, cafes and restaurants. Alongside the canal is the Otaru City Museum built in a former warehouse, which introduces visitors to local history, culture and fauna. Otaru glass-ware is also very popular with tourists, who have the opportunity to make their own cups at the Kitaichi glass shops.

Adjacent to the canal is a popular restaurant with a medieval theme, named Otaru Beer. Here you can enjoy a great beer and some famed fresh sushi. About 6 km outside of town is Nishin Goten (herring mansion), built in 1897 by a wealthy herring fisherman and amply illustrating the state of 19th century society. The sumptuous ground floor housed the family while as many as 120 workers lived in squalor upstairs. Whatever you do, you will thoroughly enjoy the town's romantic and nostalgic atmosphere which has made it the location of several well-known Japanese movies.
