Exploring Otaru

Today Amanda and I explored a city nearby Sapporo: Otaru! Otaru is known for the amazing glassworks they produce, and we got to witness that in some of the local shops.

It was quite cold, about -8 degrees Celsius, so a lot of these photos will have us covered in snow and trying to brace the winter wind. I highly recommend checking the weather before going to Otaru, because we went a little underprepared for the degree of cold that it was. 

Otaru has a really handy map that lays out all the fun things to do! It's available in 4 different languages at the JR Otaru Station.

Here's our vlog of the day, hope you enjoy!

Here are some of my favorite shots we took!
