A blue cavern at Otaru in Hokkaido. 青の洞窟、小樽。

We went to Hokkaido again for a three day trip.

Arriving at the airport,we got on a rental car and I drove the car bound for Otaru.


We got on a sightseeing motor boat to see a blue cavern.


A blue cavern.



Very near the cavern.


The color of seawater would change variously.


I took this photo from inside of the cavern.


On the way to Otaru port, we could see Mt.Tenguyama.


Otaru city has developed from the begining of 20th century as the most
important port in Hokkaido.


There are many old buildings.



Many of them are used as restaurants and gift shops.


This building was a bank.


Otaru canal. 
This canal is the trace of good and old days in this city.

  1. Hi Minoru, the canal looks a little sad,but these days we have found different uses for them. The blue water cavern is beautiful and wonderful to see in person I imagine.
    Thank you - Happy weekend!

  4. 小樽の青の洞窟、奥の方の濃い青がすてきですね。碧に近いような。小樽の運河沿い、ずいぶん昔に歩きました。小樽といえば、ルタオのチーズケーキおいしいです。

  7. At least the canal is not polluted and can still be used for tourists transport.

  8. Wow! The blue water appears like a magic. It is nice.

    I love Otaru very much and should also visit again when it is not covered by thick snow. It would look much different and interesting without wet snow.

  10. This is fantastic! I know there are caves in place like the Mediterranean Sea but didn't know about the ones in Japan. I visited Croatia recently but didn't have the opportunity to visit a blue cave.

  11. Beautiful photos, and so much greenery! Congratulations on entering the cavern, I don't think I could do that, so I'm impressed when others can do it.
