During our recent visit to Hokkaido, we drop by Otaru, a city popular for its glass ware and music box. We were there by noon and spent the whole afternoon visiting some stores selling glass ware and music boxes. It was snowing heavily with temperature in the range of -8 degree C. It was a fruitful afternoon as we managed to get some nice glasswares that are good for house decoration.
