The Otaru Canal: a location to enjoy sightseeing and shopping to the full
The Otaru Canal was built in the 1920s. Stone-built warehouses and other historical buildings from that era are preserved along the waterway, which is regarded as a major tourist spot in Otaru. Gas lamps installed along the promenade by the canal are lit in the evening, enhancing the nostalgic and romantic atmosphere and further contributing the popularity of the area. Located in the midst of the warehouses, Laox Otaru Canal Store lets you enjoy shopping and sightseeing at the same time. We have a wide variety of products, including popular beauty appliances, home appliances for overseas use, watches, cosmetics, and items best for souvenirs like snacks only available in Hokkaido.
