Former Hokkaido Government Office Building, Sapporo-shi Reviews

  • Photo stop, mini-museum and a good break to warm up. Museum showcases history of Hokkaido's development but most exhibits are in Japanese. Free admission.

  • Good photo stop, in winter the red building stands out in the snow. The building has few exhibitions and historical information about contested islands in between Hokkaido and Russia. When we went there's a light projection show at night which was beautiful.

  • Beautiful old red brick building in the heart of Sapporo with lovely grounds that include 2 ponds. Good place to take photos and go for a short walk.

  • Pleasant walk thru the park to reach beautiful red brick building. Entrance is free and they give you directions on how to use the free Wi-Fi. Inside has lots of artifacts but not much is explained in English.

  • a good place worth to visit. but all the text is in Japanese only. almostly unable to read it.
