In Otaru, which is about one hour by car from Sapporo, I visited a fish paste factory. It’s not a big factory, but you can see people make the fish paste - knead and mold and fry.
You can buy and eat the fried fish paste on the spot. Yum.
Sapporo is my hometown.
I wanted to stay longer in Otaru at night, because I know their harbor view is really lovely with canals and old warehouses by the sea. But it was such a cold day that I had to give up exploring further:/
Maybe next time.
random snapshots from Otaru
Otaru is located along the coast line, so it’s naturally famous for its good sushi too.
But this time, I had this huge fried chicken for lunch instead of seafood.
It’s my second time to visit this restaurant, and it’s still my No.1 place!
