Sapporo TV Tower, Sapporo

3.6
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.

  • It’s an iconic tower. Good for picture taking but nothing special about it in particular. LOL. It’s very accessible from Sapporo Station. I personally think it looks lovelier during winter time becaus...  more »
  • At the snow festival here go through the origin. If you sign this tower, in the snow a bit boorish. Once the clean restrooms, survived. Go to the Observatory is disappointing. The night was crowded.

  • When it is cold the air is clean or better longer. Okurayama jump stand, Sapporo Snow Festival, venues such as views. Summer is good, but winter is beautiful. Way down on the stairs home elevator arrival, what fun filled.

  • We loved this. Gorgeous views of the city of 2.2 million. Maps from several directions name what you're seeing in the city and mountains. Well organized. Modest tourist shop inside. Pretty park outside. Definitely worth the visit.
  • This is an absolute must do when visiting Sapporo. It gives you a great perspective on the city, but also allows you to see the mountains and countryside beyond (weather permitting). I thought it was funny at the bottom of the stairs it read that you need to climb 3 stories, but as you climb stairs it slowly tells you it's actually more like 6 normal stories. So I had a nice workout thanks to tricky signage! ;) There is a lower elevator if climbing 6 stories is not your thing. The upper elevator, which is enclosed by glass quickly shoots you up to the top. It makes for a nice video if you get a good spot. Anyways, I think you should visit the tower!
  • Beautiful experience to do when in Sapporo. When I went to the tv tower it was a clear sky morning in January and from the top I could enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the mountains around it all covered in snow. Priced at 700/800 yen but in my opinion worth it. There is a shop with any sort of souvenirs if you need to buy presents for friends and family.
  • If you don't want to buy ticket you could just go to the 3rd Floor and look at the great views of Sapporo from here as well. I went there in January 2019 and it was snowing. Underneath it there are a lot of shops and places to eat. I believe it links to the subway trains.
  • Excellent Tourist Spot to go to in Sapporo. The underground walkway was the fastest route to take to get escape the cold winds and snow.
