Everyone took a shot at the famous canal. Nice weather that day. There is a water spot that we found near the place. However, we do not dare to drink the water from it.

Places we went in Otaru: 梦藏人, 小樽音樂盒堂本館 , 銀の鐘

梦藏人
All the things inside are selling at 1050 Yen. We only managed to see this type of 1050 Yen shop in Hokkaido. So visit them for some stuffs if possible to grab some deals.

小樽音樂盒堂本館
A lot of nice music box are housed inside. There are a lot more, but I have shopped too long in this place until I do not have the time to visit the rest. In total, there are 7 of them, and all sell different types of music box.

銀の鐘
You can take a tea break there and enjoy the scenery of the town. After your drink, you can bring the cup home.

We are supposed to return to our bus by 4.15pm. Before we board the bus, we bought 2 Hokkaido Ice Cream. He bought the chocolate flavour, while I have the 3 mixture flavour (Lavendar, Vanlina, Melon). Nice!

Final stop would be Hilton Niseko Village Hotel where we will spent a night there. They also have Onsen. But nobody knows the environment well, including tour guide and leader, as this is also their first time in a luxury hotel stay! We are not allowed to wear the Yukata and walk around the reception area. This hotel is more for business stay rather than leisure stay.
