Highly recommended if you never been to Otaru! The guide was so humor yet knowledgeable on Otaru history, and he was also super friendly. Even though we were late a bit due to a confusion on meeting point, he was so nice to greet the full 60mins course to us. Overall, we had a great time, and the rickshaw part was definitely one of the highlights of the whole trip!
