Japan 2022: Otaru

I decided to spend my last day before my flight to Toyama by visiting the port city of Otaru, which is about an hour outside Sapporo.

First stop: breakfast at the Sankaku fish market.

My breakfast resto
View of Otaru from Mt. Tengu
Dried squid is amazingly tasty
Japanese soft-serve ice cream is far better than in the U.S.
I decided to try another Michelin-rated ramen place in Otaru. The line looked short …
… but it continued inside.
Only seats a few people at a time
Otaru is known for its beautiful canal area
