This is a quite important thing for us to have "Otaru Snow Light Path".
We call it "Wax Bowl". As you might guess, it's made from wax.
Every year before this event, many volunteers make and place them at each venue around Otaru city. Old candles are reused every year. During this event, making wax bowl can be enjoyed easily.
Schedule : 2013. February. 8 ~ 17
Time : 5pm ~ 8:30pm
Fee : 800yen
Place : Temiya railway venue (Courtyard of Literary museum)
Access : 10 minutes walk from JR Otaru station
Volunteer staffs teach you how to make it, you can take your own wax bowl on the day. I've also made it 2 years ago, and still now I've been using it as a indirect lighting in my room. I'm sure that making your wax bowl becomes your wonderful memory in winter Otaru.
Have fun :)
