Hostel Canal View in Otaru offers accommodation which is fully equipped and furnished. It's situated on top of the hill with spectacular views, a 20-minute walk from Otaru station and a 19-minute walk from Otaru Canal Park.
You'll be able to reach my place while you are thinking about why and how was it built on such a steep hilltop like here!
And you can't resist to post some photos on Instagram to show off your great adventure when you face this steep slope.
It doesn't look too bad against other steep slopes in the world.
I think to myself that this slope should be introduced as one of the steepest slopes in the world!
If you want some work out, this slope will surely wear you
If you think you are fit, you might be able to bike up!
Otaru is one of the most famous cities with steep slopes in Japan. There are slopes all over the city and they are so steep.
Interestingly, a lot of them have their own name.
Have you ever heard of "Hell slope" in Otaru?
When you see Hell slope after you visit my place, I'll bet you say `Oh, dear, Hell slope is not that hell, it's just the beginning of it!` because one of the best in Otaru is right here, the slope to my place!
I know you are getting interested in the hostel, right?
Many of my guests say, it sure is a steep slope. However, I can see spectacular view so it's worth staying here!
Not only scenery but also a brand new building is one of the features as well.
When you enter the room, your effort will be rewarded.
