[HOKKAIDO DAY 03 : OTARU]
Recommended by friends and the official Hokkaido website, we decided to make this day trip up to the northern port of the island.

At one point nearing the destination, we were literally on the coast! It was a stunning and welcoming experience to the town. We took so many photos on this daytrip out! Here’s a selected few:
