The train arrives and departs on time, as are buses available for connecting traffic.Nearby you will find shops for what you might need for your trip. In Japan, you want to be effective and helpful with signage, such as schedules, but sometimes it becomes so...More

Station is very close to Smile Hotel. It has a bus terminal where we can take a bus to Otaru Aquarium. At the station, there is a Burger King, a bakery which sells yummy bread and a convenient store.

Just a Railway Station. Serves its purpose of being at a centralised location. Walk for about 20-30 min to Otaru Canal.
