En route to Sapporo, Otaru is located an hour and a half away from Niseko. Stop by at this small harbor city to feast on the fresh seafood along the coast. In the evening, take a cruise down Otaru Canal and enjoy the night view of nostalgic old buildings and lamps.

Known for its night view, Hakodate also offers an equally spectacular view of the Japanese sea. Wander down Hakodate's fish market in the early morning and grab a tasty seafood rice bowl before heading closer to the ports for an outlook of Hakodate and the Japanese sea.
