About Clock Tower, Sapporo-shi

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

  • This place is located in the heart of Sapporo. You can walk around city. Antique and beautiful. We impressed very much.

  • Lovely history. Well presented in several languages. Nice and cheap with great value

  • A beautiful sight that you should definitely visit if nearby, though it's not something that you might want to go out of your way to see or experience.

  • We really enjoyed our visit here, the building itself is not overly grand but really interesting. Walks you through the history and founding of the city of Sapproro, info in English and Japanese. Only 200yen entrance fee, which is pretty cheap for all that you learn from your visit. We went to the Sapporo beer museum afterwards and it really put everything into context knowing the history of the city. That said, probs not a great museum for kids, lots of reading/images not much interactive exhibits.

  • One of things that represent Sapporo. You'll have to pay only 200 yen for the entrance fees, which is not so high compared to the things you will get from going inside. They show some photos and history of the city in the past. Another place to go in Sapporo. But going inside isn't necessary.
