  • I think there is no place here so far and the image. I think it is good looking. Where 2-and. Shot from the point for the photo in the corner of the street, and indeed can I qualify for such photos, but in the middle of the basic buildings. Rather than building on the campus of Hokkaido University feels quaint.

  • After witnessing the spectacle that betrayed the image in the forest they say well, immersed in the Bill really fine little laugh came out. Photography and worked perfectly. Hokkaido! That feeling came, it has value as a photo spot. Seems surprising and in history would be like because it takes money to people like and liked cospa-I thought. Because I liked the very corners of history and clean around.

  • Disappointed said the attractions are the clock just. I think, however, is worth seeing once a famous place.

  • The clock tower was located near the city of Sapporo, I used it to help me to find the way back to my hotel everyday during my stay. To me, the place looked more lovely at night, especially when the spot light shined at the clock. There was a wooden-made platform located on the front-right of the tower for individual to take selfie or a group of people to take photos with the tower. Very thoughtful indeed!
  • Probably the most famous building in Sapporo, and historically that makes sense, but there really wasn't anything interesting about it to me. It's worth ticking off your list, if only because it's incredibly convenient, and to help understand the history of the city. The former government building nearby is much more interesting architecturally.
  • Wasn't able to go in, but the house looks fancy from the outside. I'm not sure what kind of stuff they have inside the museum. If you are fond of museum I guess it will be worth to check out.
  • A small building but full of information. If you know Japanese then I would recommend you to take guide.
  • A historic place, but looks just like a big Clock. There is an entry fee to go inside.
