I visited Otaru and Yoichi. in late October.
Otaru is now famous and many tourists come throughout a year and Yoichi is gradually going to be famous all over the world for its techniques of whiskey distilling.
I visited Tengu-yama at first.
Tengu-yama is 532 meters high and you can see a nice view of Otaru city and Sea of Japan from abservetory deck.
At Mt.Tengu, you may have a chance to come across the legendary goblin, ”Tengu”.
Tengu is living deep in the mountains.
He has supernatural powers and is human in form. He has
a red face, a long nose and wings on his back, and flies as
he pleases with a feather fan in his hand.
Herring palace in Otaru.
This is the old style Japanese house built by rich fisher man.
