Otaru was our destination for Day 2!
We woke up early for breakfast at the hotel (courtesy of the hotel due to the blunder they made, read day 1). It was "viking" style which means buffet. Surprisingly the spread was very good. Initially we thought of just a light breakfast but the food looked quite attractive so I indulged a little bit more :p
Assortment of veggie - simmered konnyaku, chestnut, carrot, baked potato, pumpkin, sweet corn, cabbage, omelet and hanpen (Japanese fish cake). All products of Hokkaido, very sweet and fresh.
I couldn't resist some fresh salad, more sweet corn and potato salad. And I had 2 glasses of Hokkaido milk which was so creamy and delicious!
After the stroll at the Canal, we went searching for a glass workshop where we could make our own glassware. Earlier on when we were at Sakaimachi Street, the glassware shop that I was looking for was closed down :( We found another glassware shop about 5 mins from the Canal, but their reservations were full for the day! So disappointed!
After the "afternoon tea", it was about 5pm and already dark due to winter. We decided to head back to Sapporo. Should have walked back to the Canal to look at the night scenery which would be lovely as well, I sort of regretted it after that. Both hubby and I really like Otaru a lot, wish we have more time to slowly explore the whole place. We agreed that we would visit Otaru again for our Hokkaido trips and probably stay in Otaru for a night.
Took the JR back to Sapporo where it's shopping time for me once again.
That's the end of our Day 2!
Day 3 we would be going to Shiroi Koibito Park and Curb Market (seafood wholesale market). Stay tuned!
