Different at night

It was covered with snow. The night view was beautiful with snow on the background. Looked like in another world.

beautiful old intersection
Mar 2019 • Family
This intersection does have beautiful scenery all around for photo taking. The surrounding is not too heavy with vehicles but always fill up with crowd. This location has several different instagramable spots. Unlike other part of Japan, many places in Hokkaido are heavily influenced by western architecture and culture. Marches intersection also has western flavor. This intersection is surrounded with old buildings which already turned into various shops and museums.

The irregular five-forked intersection near Otaru Music Box Museum is called Marchen Crossroads. Near the center is a street light in the shape of an old-fashioned lighthouse. A whistling steam powered clock, five meters high, is another attraction at this peaceful spot.

A good place to sit and absorb the atmosphere
Sep 2018
Stroll along the vibrant tourist street, which is full of gift shops, restaurants etc, and this is a good spot to sit and quietly watch the world go by before continuing exploring Otaru.

Good rest area

We had a short break after a long walk at this place. Surrounded by trees and nice buildings, it was a small peaceful area amidst busy streets. The timing was just right that we managed to view the steam clock and the nice bell.

It makes a perfect meeting point. Can have an ice cream and see the world goes by. Not much of an attraction but can have pictures taken with colonial buildings a background.

The intersection was lit up at night during Christmas when we were there. We took some really nice photos here and it captures the nice buildings around.
