⬟ Warehouse Concept (倉庫) ⬟
Set up with red brick walls, wooden furniture, and
warm earth-tone colors to represent a warehouse,
this room also provides a mini bar with a barrel as a motif and
a desk mirror that is shaped as a
a ship's wheel.
⬟ Soft Stone Concept (軟石) ⬟
This room's concept is based on the stone used on buildings from Taisho to the early Showa period,
which was called
"Wall Street in the North".
The interior is similar to
the Warehouse rooms,
however here the color scheme uses different gray tones, creating a more stylish and calm sense.
⬟ Zen Concept (禅) ⬟
You would think since it has a tatami floor, it would be called "Japanese style room" or something of the sort,
however the theme of this room is "Zen", something relaxing and modern.
With a serene color scheme of black ink and white wood on the walls, along with grass color and fine Japanese designs all over is said to guide those in the room to zen. If you don't get the relaxing feeling while being in the room, don't worry!
At least you won't have to worry about you or your kids rolling off the bed!
The beds are so low to the ground, they are easy to climb up on.
⬟ Secret Base (秘密基地) ⬟
This room incorporates a bunk bed/sofa,
making your stay fun for those with a playful side!
Great for a family of four or a group of friends.
Just close the doors and batten up the hatches,
and you've got your secret base.
Relax in the Hotel Public Bath
There are two bathhouses, men's and women's, at Hotel Torifito Otaru Canal and they alternate rooms daily. There are beautiful murals on the walls done by popular Japanese painters, one room has a painting of Mt. Yotei (羊蹄山) and the other the Otaru Canal (小樽運河). Since the rooms alternate daily, it gives you a chance to soak in both rooms!
⏰♨ Hours: 3pm-1am, 6am-10am
Hokkaido Originated Breakfast
It's also worth mentioning, that Hokkaido's milk is probably some of the best, most creamy milk you have ever had. We eventually lost count of how many glasses we had here for breakfast. Something else you can only get in Hokkaido is a drink similar to "Yakult" (ヤクルト), a probiotic lactobacillus dairy drink, by the name of Soft Katsugen (ソフトカツゲン). Try a cup when you have breakfast at Hotel Torifito Otaru Canal, your taste buds and tummy will thank you!
⏰🍞Breakfast: 6:30-10:00 (last order time: 9:30)
