If you come to Otaru from New Chitose Airport and Sapporo by JR train, you'll enjoy beautiful views from the train window.
The train runs along the coastline.
I took this photo at Asari area.
This is one of my favorite sights in Otaru.
There are some beaches for swimming on the way to Otaru from Sapporo.
Asari, as well. You can reach the Asari beach by only 5 minutes walk from JR Asari station.
In these days, Otaru is sooo hot... So, many people enjoy swimming and BBQ at the beach.
Would you like to enjoy hot summer at beach in Otaru??
