Explore three of Otaru’s must-see destinations: a lavish historical residence, the summit of lofty Mt. Tengu, and the shops occupying the restored warehouses along Otaru Canal.


Visit the former Aoyoma Villa, a lavish home built in the 1920s for the Aoyoma family, who controlled much of the lucrative herring fishing industry. As you meander through the exquisite interior, be sure to notice the details and craftsmanship that took a crew of 40 men six years to complete.


Ride an aerial tram to the summit of Mt. Tengu, a lofty peak that has become the symbol of Otaru. The sights along the way will be spectacular, perhaps only eclipsed by those from the observation deck at the top of the mountain. There is no better vantage point to view sprawling Otaru, the Shakotan Peninsula and the mountain range beyond.


Head to Otaru Canal, which was first used for shipping in the 1920s. When modern dock facilities were built, the canals became obsolete until a few decades ago when the entire area was transformed into an historical shopping and dining district. During a little over 1 hour of free time here, you might stroll the promenade along the canal, browse the one-of-a-kind shops in the restored warehouses, or explore a bit on your own.


Need to Know:

Note: As per Japanese custom, shoes must be removed before entering Aoyama Villa.
