Walking along Otaru’s Sakaimachi Street is like opening a giant music box. Though the city is famous for its canal area, the one that I will always remember is how sweet the chimes of music mixes with the gloomy cold weather at this port town.

Inside the old brick walled buildings along the street are products that were not only nice to look at but something that were tempting to purchase particularly if you are into collecting charms and crystals.
