from Sapporo JR to ozu, the left is the mountain, the right is the sea, JR shuttle between the mountains and the sea, do not have the mood.
JR way station name is very poetic romantic: qin, hand rice, rice ear, hair cold, star, star, money letter, zhaoli, otaru in Hong Kong. After the money letter, the car drove along the beach, looking out of the window at the clear blue sea of Japan water receding back, it seemed to take not a car, but a boat, very wonderful. The sea of Japan here greets everyone who comes to otaru in search of vines.
in addition it is important to note that the Hokkaido is a large rural, urban before (especially the station) trains don’t like the state of a few minutes. So you must plan ahead to sit number and some special trains, less a day only a few classes, had to wait for several hours, so you have to choke a good time to go to the driver ~ timetable can be checked to the website http://www2.jrhokkaido.co.jp/global/cn/ttable/index.html.

walk to the other end of the street, you will see a big steam bell, otaru music box hall.
steam clock was built in bronze by a famous Canadian watchmaker in 1977 and is said to be the same model as the steam clock in vancouver gas town. The steam clock, which is 5.5 meters high, 1 meter wide and weighs 1.5 tons, is an electric clock that generates steam when a computerized boiler boils. It is the largest steam clock in the world. In addition to the hour, steam clock every 15 minutes will also emit a section of music whistle, attracting visitors to stop listening, is to Hokkaido can not miss the attractions.
into the music box hall, as if into the fairy-tale world, because of the two floors of the quaint building, originally a total of the company’s warehouse, the interior empty, thousands of kinds of music boxes make you dazzling. Above the space is a suspended loft, a unique musical box made of pottery or glass that glows in the dim light. Turn to the corridor on the second floor, you will feel to come to the delicate jewelry store, a dazzling variety of ornaments, or hanging on the wall, or plate in the box. But whether it’s a necklace or a pocket watch, it’s all about music.
in addition to the choice of finished music box, here can also match music movement and shell, very personalized. When you pay the bill, the waiter will kindly ask you whether you are giving it to others or using it for yourself. The person giving it to others will help you pack it, and also stick on the hand-drawn picture difference, so that you can quickly distinguish it without opening the package. It’s so sweet.
