Day 4 – Otaru daytrip

Now that we’re in Hokkaido-proper it’s quick to travel around. Otaru is practically an outer suburb to Sapporo, just under an hour away.

I only took a few shots on the Delta 3200 but now I want to shoot colour, so I’ve loaded up the Velvia. I’ll re-load the Delta later and finish it off when I’m in the mood.

Otaru is a proper port town, so it naturally has more history as an international trading hub with the rest of the world. There’s a lot of remaining signs of foreign influence, and there’s a certain charm to it all. I mean it’s extremely touristy, but it’s tolerable.
