Because Otaru is facing the sea, and the land area is made up of hills, you can enjoy wonderful views of the sea from everywhere.
Among others, I like the view of a red and a white lighthouse.
It is a picture-book scene, isn’t it?
In the other image, you can see a red and white crane. This is also my favorite scene against the background of the sea. Some people call the crane giraffe, as its shape looks like a giraffe from a distance.
The sea changes its appearances every day, depending on the season, weather and time of a day. I never get tired of gazing the sea.
