Otaru: Street Strolling and Blowing

Other than the picturesque Canal District, Otaru has a street lined with shops transformed from warehouses. This street is called Ironai Odori. The buildings themselves are really beautiful and unique enough for me to take a series of photos.

This street is also a great place to shop for local food, souvenirs and handicrafts of Otaru.

Apart from shopping, there are art galleries along the street for those who fancy art appreciation.

There is even a workshop which teaches glassware making called K's Blowing. A glass-blowing lesson will set you back around ¥2,000, but you can bring back the masterpiece that you have made through the lesson.
