Snow play ground

This is one of my work place, Canal Plaza. (Located just 10 minutes from JR Otaru station.)

After you enter the Canal Plaza, a big door will catch your eyes

and, this is one of my favorite place of Canal Plaza.

Look at the behind of the door ↓↓

There is a large courtyard.

This courtyard is surrounded by stone warehouses.

About 100 years ago, warehouse staff kept cargoes at this courtyard once, and then they put them into each warehouses.

It was best place to block outside eyes from customer's cargoes.

Recently, staffs of Otaru Tourism Association are planning to make something interesting here for visitors.

This courtyard is deeply covered with snow every year, so we wanna make Kamakura(Snow hut), snow slide and so on, like play ground.

What would you like to make?

    The post is actually the freshest on this laudable subject. I harmonize with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to see your approaching updates.

      Actually we are having a winter event, "Otaru Snow Light Path". During this event, the kiln for glass making is placed at this courtyard! Everybody can enjoy glass making for free!!
