Winter Hokkaido: Otaru Canal, Yoichi, Shiroi Koibito Park Illumination Tour & Dinner at Bier Keller


1. Otaru: One of the most popular sightseeing destinations in Hokkaido, the port city is known for its nostalgic ambience. Kitaichi Glass, the center of glasswork in the city and the Music Box Museum are popular places to visit. 2. Nikka Whisky Yoichi Distillery: The distillation process at Yoichi has remained very traditional to this day and still uses direct coal-fire, which is hardly seen today, as it is difficult to control temperatures by hand and requires highly skilled craftsmen. 3. Shiroi Koibito Park: a theme park run by Ishiya, a local chocolate company. The company's flagship product is the Shiroi Koibito cookie, which consists of two thin butter cookies and a layer of white chocolate in between. It is one of the most famous souvenirs from Hokkaido. Enjoy seeing a romantic illumination at the park as well. 4. Bier Keller: Savor Hokkaido's signature Mongolian BBQ, which is all-you-can-eat, plus snow crab and sushi. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Please write in the 'Additional Information' of the booking form: A mobile phone number that works in Japan, if you have one.
