Otaru is located on Ishikari Bay of the Sea of Japan on Hokkaido Island. With a name meaning "sandy beach", Otaru developed as a modern town in the late 19th century.

Visit the Asarigawa Spa, Otamoi Park, and the Otaru Aquarium, one of the largest in Japan. Sapporo, laid out in 1871, features wide, tree-lined boulevards and some beautiful Botanical Gardens incorporating the Ainu Museum and Sapporo Art Park. The Sapporo Beer Garden and Museum and the Historical Village of Hokkaido are also well worth visiting.

Although Korsakov and the Sakhalin District owe their existence to the less-than-glamorous industries of fishing, coal and oil, the typically Russian cities of this peninsula have always managed to sneak in a little fun, even during the height of Communism. Amid the Lenin statues and austere buildings, colorful flowers add cheer to the city streets, and lively markets offer brightly hued fruits and vegetables that make it from the hinterland to the table in just a matter of hours.

It is essentially the cone of a submerged volcano called Vulcan Alaid protruding above the Sea of Okhotsk. 


Its near perfect shape gave rise to many legends about the volcano among the peoples of the region, such as the Itelmens and Kuril Ainu. The Russian scientist Stepan Krasheninnikov was told the story that it was once a mountain in Kamchatka, but the neighboring mountains became jealous of its beauty and exiled it to the sea, leaving behind lake Kurile in southern Kamchatka.
