A Trip on a Train to Otaru
Say that five times fast. Suckers.
After a delicious breakfast of purple potatos with poached eggs(tongue twister day) we took a bus to the train station in Teine. From Teine we took the train to Otaru, which runs along the coast of the Sea of Japan and we could even see glimpses of Russia.
Otaru is small town, on the coast with a canal. It’s got some cute shopping, delicious seafood and kitchy stuff but really people just go for the canal. Everything worth seeing is walking distance from the station, so Otaru is excellent for a day trip.
We ate delicious seafood, saw the canal and rode a train! More pictures to follow.
