A walk at Otaru merchandise street "小樽“

Perhaps walking will able to burn the fat we just took in at the Kaitensushi just now... after a minute of walking, we came to a very famous street at Otaru where everyone will come here if you are at Otaru... 


Along the street you will found this Workshop where by some people are making glasses here ... and I snap a few shot of them... this also one of the attraction of this place... According to the history of Otaru, Glasses and oil lamp are one of the product bring riches to this place at 1901. 

The worker is carefully rubbing the glass to make it even...

Blowing air into the glass also one of the process which can not be less... to fill up the air into the glass is not easy... it take you years to gain the experiences...



Each of everyone are doing their own craft work...

Some of the building here are more than 100 years old ... you also can realize the building are full of European style... It doesn't really look like the one you found in Japan...

This is an art gallery... 

This is another antique building which has something hidden inside... will bring you in there is a short moment...

The signboard just right beside the entrance  of the building...

 This is how it look when you standing at the main door... as you see the word “硝子” this means Glass in Japanese... 

This is the second layer door inside the building... look so solid and ancient right?!

Wonder why this is a little bit darker than other restaurant?! This place is decorated with 167 pieces of oil lamps

Only on thing I don't really feel comfortable when I'm here, as here is full of oil burning smell...
Other than the smell, here is definitely Magnificence!



This is one of the largest store that selling music box in the Japan... You can find many different design and different sizes... Some of them are even handcraft...


The environment here are just too Extravagance, I stood at my position for more than 10 minutes just to appreciate it.

Another historical corner inside the Music Box store...

 Here  is the second floor ... and here displaying many limited edition of music box, each of them are unique... you can even customize it to your liking...

This is the post office in Otaru where just located opposite the Music Box store....
