Built in 1878, the Clock Tower was originally built for military drills for the Sapporo Agricultural College. The first floor rooms were used as lecture rooms, exhibition halls and laboratories for the college.

Today, the classic building still remains one of the oldest structures in Sapporo and is loved for its old-world charm, classic functioning clock and simple architecture.

Do visit the place during evenings (especially in winter season when the clock is lit up while the building is covered in snow).

Clock Tower, Sapporo-shi Reviews - Write a Review

  • Beautiful building and the clock is still working right now. How awesome. I visited this place on Autumn. A must visit place in Sapporo. It's easy to reach this place by walking, because Sapporo is like a small city.

  • A small exhibition museum to talk about the area around the clock. The clock tower itself is beautiful during autumn (and perhaps winter)

  • Recomendation for you to come during autumn. During winter, it still a nice view.

  • There is a nice museum here with some English information, and contains a 120+ year old clock built by a company in Boston. It's worth seeing if you're in Sapporo looking for something to do and you enjoy history.

  • You can explore Sapporo on your own and be with locals. Enjoy the beauty of the place.
