  • Can't get inside on the internal conversion in that until the end of October, was disappointing. I originally was in the drill Hall of Sapporo agricultural college. However, Vista is elegant and beautiful.

  • A very surprising visit. The ancient clock tower in Sapporo which possess a very dramatic history and the foreigner living in Hokkaido. The exhibition shows many great stories and how the residents of Sapporo developed. Worth to visit for understanding Sapporo.
  • After thinking not another historical building, this one was different. There is a lot to look at downstairs and then upstairs is made out like a classroom. It had one of the first agricultural universities. You can read how different people who were there went on to have done amazing futures. The clocks are fascinating.
  • One of the earliest building to have been built in Sapporo. Originally an agricultural university building, this place now houses the history of Sapporo was developed in the past. Located at the heart of the city, it's an iconic place to take a photo and not to be missed.
  • The staff if very friendly and more than willing to help with questions you might have, even if it's not directly related to the clock tower. It was nice to see how they restored it and how they maintained the building. Most of the information is in Japanese but some is translated into English and Korean.
  • Must visit place even for limited time trip to Sapporo. Full with historical facts and artifacts. Recommend to see old clock inside clock tower.
