Map of Otaru (Sapporo), Japan
Walk to the closest station from the port - there is one about 5 minutes away and a station a further walk away (don't take the bus as you will get stuck in traffic). Take the train to Sapporo- it is 20-30 mins away from memory. Here you can find the park, previous Olympic city, shops, great food places etc. In August last year there was a huge beer festival spread through the city's Central Park.

Port - had radio blaring at 6am - not happy. Local entertainers sang farewell to the ship was enjoyable. Street walk to see old buildings, visited a herring magnate house and garden

Reentering Japan. Took up to 5 hours to clear immigration. Don’t plan an independent excursion as no allowances were made for this. Took local canal cruise which is within walking distance from port.
