We were disappointed with the Otaru Canal and found it was over-rated. Nothing spectacular about it. We passed it at 8pm and it was dark and not lighted up.

This is a nice small historical museum of the history of Otaru. The museum features many displays representing the early fishing and financial centers of Otaru. Everything is written in Japanese, so it helps to know some, but for the most part the displays are self explanatory.
