  • Is famous for its clock tower, surrounded by skyscrapers, surprisingly, in a sober impression, was anticlimactic. Admission fee: 200 yen for adults;

  • I enjoyed the visit to the Clock tower as it gave a glimpse of Hokkaido and Sapporo's history through the history of the tower. It is really entertaining for me. 
  • 這鐘樓外有專為遊客拍攝取景的位置。無論日夜什麼時候都是拍照留念的好地方。如果入內參觀要另外付費,但一票兩用,可再參觀附近的電視㙮,學生或小童更是免費。

  • 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.
