Later dinner at Otaru during Snow Light Path Festival

During the Otaru Light Festival We will only get into Otaru around 6pm since we will be skiing Mt Teine in the day. Upon arrival we would like to see the festival at both the canal and old railway track areas. I know light-up is until 9pm. Is there any dinner place which stay open late? So we can have something to eat after the visiting the light-up sites? Near the canal or the Otaru Station would be ideal...
Don't want to waste time eating before seeing the light-up..

Tq, Mel

Sapporo-Otaru Welcome Pass  (4 Answers)

I plan to go to Teine Highland Ski Resort for a day of skiing then onto Otaru for the Otaru Canal Snow Light Path Festival. Returning to Sapporo that evening. Does the Sapporo-Otaru Welcome Pass cover my JR train from Sapporo to Teine Station then Teine Station to Otaru Station later? Meaning my train journey from Sapporo to Otaru would be broken into 2 train rides.
Secondly, I'm taking the JR bus from Teine Station to Teine Highland Ski Resort and back to the station. Does the pass also cover this JR bus ride?
