Sapporo TV Tower, Sapporo

3.5
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.

  • 4/4's representative visited Sapporo tourist attractions. Odori Park and clock tower, television tower and all located within walking distance on the move to the airport. I thought should I look during the day, is the meaning of the title, but from the observation deck lighting of Sapporo Odori looks below. And visiting summer four years ago, but at that time is beer garden beneath the TV Tower, time certainly did at 18 o'clock there were local workers (and who seems to be) and tilt the glass, I was envious. I think image * no rainy season to Hokkaido, so when you drink good or I'm not. I think good, Odori Park, the clock tower, and the TV tower to go in the 3-piece set.

  • Removing ice would make it safer. So many people walking and not lifting their feet. However the festival is full of energy. Massive range of food. Super busy at night. Much better day time, shows start at night. Please book rooms a few months before going. Love Sapporo, so much to see and do. You need 7 days here, side trips are a must.
  • This place offers a quick detour if you want to view Odori Park from a higher vantage point, or if you find it too cold outside and simply want to find a heated place to hide in. A very Japanese experience because: - there is a whole fleet of vending machines at the entrance - they have a mascot for the tower, in the shape of the tower - there are souvenir shops at almost all levels, and there are claw machines too
  • This tower is actually not tall compared with the like of Toronto CN tower, Shanghai Pearl Tower, Eiffel Tower, but it locates at the heart of Sapporo downtown. You can take a really amazing night photo especially for the Winter festival period. The 12 blocks starting from TV tower shows the whole festival main venue in Sapporo. However, a lot of tourists occupied the side facing O-dori Road for a really long time for long exposure with Tripod even though the warning notice posted on the windows.
  • Went to the observation deck during night. the sightseeing was alright. The structure reserves the classy style of the past image of Sapporo. There is a staff, who introduces the overall information of the Tower. It could have been better if the staff can also introduce the information in English. Right below the tower, there are a large area for vending booths. Many local people seem to find the area for a light beer after work. It looks harmonized well.
  • Having lived in New York for a long time, the Sapporo TV Tower feels a bit like a toy, but it is unique and very reflective of the era it was built in. Good panoramic views of the nearby topography. Like everything else in Japan, it ain't cheap though.
