Otaru is a city and port in Shiribeshi, Hokkaido, Japan, northwest of Sapporo.
Have been there a couple of times, but never in the right season .
There is a canal there which is said to be romantic – especially in Winter when it is covered with snow.
The canal was also the background of a television series.
The resulting image looks as if the area around the Otaru canal is covered with snow – which is the Winter scene I want.
To be able to reduce the number of colors and getting a romantic image is just magical !
