The Shakotan Blue Total Adventure

HOME > The Shakotan Blue Total Adventure


Fish at Otaru Port, a popular site for sea fishing in Hokkaido. Catch surf smelts and sardines. After getting the hang of sea fishing, try surf casting and you could catch some flounder.
Lunch at Naruto, a restaurant that serves fried half-chicken, a specialty of Otaru. You'll find the succulent chicken scrumptious.
After satisfying your appetite and having a good rest, proceed a bit westward to Shioya Beach.
There you'll sea kayak to the beautiful Blue Grotto, a unique site. Take a break at a desolate spot.
You'll practice offshore before kayaking to the site, so even a beginner can be confident of having fun.
On this tour, feel the water and enjoy the sea at Otaru.
