Railway track located between More hotel and Otaru station. We enjoyed walking along the track, looking at locals house and feeling nostalgic. The track will lead you to the tourist spots Sakamachi.

This is a must visit if like glassware. It's a big building with a couple small shops and deli shops in the building. The restaurant is really beautiful serving both main and desert dish.

Beautiful handicraft, loved the sake sets especially. Nice limited edition seasonal pieces for gifts. Not cheap but not likely to get similar elsewhere.

Plenty of glassware to choose from, price is reasonable, packaging was very good. We bought a couple of cups which can change color when pouring hot water
