Mitsui Outlet Park Sapporo Kitahiroshima
Mitsui Outlet Park Sapporo Kitahiroshima is an authentic outlet mall in Hokkaido. It features numerous domestic and international name brand stores in fashion, select shops and more, where high quality products are sold at outlet prices.

Exploring Otaru
The sightseeing bus will drop off passengers at Otaru Canal Terminal. From there passengers will have free time to explore Otaru Canal, Kitaichi Glass, Otaru Music Box Museum, Kitakaro Confectionery, and other sightseeing spots and shops.
We also recommend Sakaimachi-dori-Ave, a 750-meter strip from Wall Street of the North toward Marchén Intersection. The area was once the central part of Otaru, which flourished during the Meiji Era, where much of the retro atmosphere and historical buildings that have been renovated into shops, still remains. It is a highly popular shopping area of Otaru.
