Romantic Atmosphere of Taisho Period -Otaru Canal-

April 21st, 2017

Otaru Canal (小樽運河) was built to unload a ship easily in 1923 because the marine transport became active. But the transport became diverse, and the marine transport was not used. It was said the canal was demolished for a while, but a part of the canal was preserve as a cultural site, and it changed to a sightseeing spot. The stone canal and brick buildings along the canal make us feel exoticism at that time. By the way, tourists can look over the canal on a sightseeing boat. More information, here.
