Sapporo TV Tower, Sapporo

3.5
#7 of 61 in Sightseeing in Sapporo
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
Get a prime view of Sapporo from Sapporo TV Tower, a 150 m (490 ft) observation deck in the center of town. This attraction sits within Odori Park, a popular green space and festival ground. Enjoy the park before heading to its eastern end, where you'll find the tower and observation deck that allow you to take in the city's skyline. Even if you don't get the chance to visit this structure, which was built in 1957, be sure to keep an eye out for it at nighttime, when it becomes fully lit up. A visit to Sapporo TV Tower represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sapporo tourist route planner to plot your vacation.

  • Observatory towers in any city offer two things: views of the city in day time or views of the city in night time. What makes Sapporo TV Tower different from a lot of the other towers in Japan is that it offers something extra: Sapporo covered in snow or Sapporo green and alive. These extra variables make it worth going up and checking out the good views.
  • Great view of Sapporo from up here. Good for collecting pics for your phone wallpaper/Facebook cover photos :P Restaurants are a bit touristy though. There are souvenir shops on Level 3 which is free to access.
  • I quite enjoy going up on all these TV towers when traveling in Japan. In general, Japanese are not pro skyscrapers, so normally you can have a great unblocking view to the entire city. You can even see the city of Sapporo surrounded by those mountains as the backdrop. Also a good mean to understand the fabric of this city and another way to view the two major linear parks.
  • The TV tower lights up during the night. And only the side facing the odori park is light up. a good place to visit and spend time in the park. And recommended when there are events at the park
  • Great view of the cite and the park. The gift shop is ok, and also take up about 1/6th of the view blocking the window. Staff is fantastic as is normal for everywhere in Japan. The landscaping is beautiful around the base.
