Shopping District in Otaru's Historic Buildings

Sakaimachi Street in Otaru is a collection of shops, cafes, restaurants, and museums housed in traditional buildings by Otaru Canal. The street is lined with stores selling fresh desserts, snacks, music boxes, and more. Sample fresh sea-food from vendors who cook it on grill as soon as you order, or just take some snacks home for later. While visiting the Sakaimachi street, be sure to visit the vintage steam clock at the front of the famous Music Box Museum. The stunning grandfather clock releases steam every hour, while the museum inside houses over 15,000 unique music boxes. These boxes range from classic music to hits by current pop-stars. Otaru is also well known for producing high quality glass works, many which can be purchased along Sakaimachi. Some vendors also offer workshops and glass-blowing displays for tourists to try for themselves. Before the day ends, be sure to visit LeTAO, an Otaru essential for lovers of cheesecake and sweets. The Double Fromage is said to be their most well-known product and is a must. LeTAO has three branches spread across Sakaimachi street for you to enjoy no matter how far down the road you go.
