Sapporo Clock Tower Reviews
ビルの谷間にありますが、時計台は存在感がありました。正面向かって右手側に、写真撮影台が用意されていました。全体をきれいに撮影するのが意外に難しい建物だと思います。 more »It is in the valley of the building, but the clock tower had a presence. On the right hand side facing the front, there was a photography stand. I think that it is a building that is unexpectedly difficult to take a picture of the whole neatly.
「旧札幌農学校演武場」が由来、札幌の開拓の歴史を伝える貴重な建築物です。周囲を高い建物に囲まれているので「がっかり」される方もいるようですが、やはり一度は訪問してみてはと言いたくなります。更にここから赤煉瓦で有名な北海道旧本庁舎ー＞北海道大学など巡れば一層開拓の知識は深まると思います。 more »"Former Sapporo Agricultural School Enbuba" is a valuable building that tells the history of the development of Sapporo. Some people seem to be "disappointed" because they are surrounded by tall buildings, but i would like to say that you should visit once. Furthermore, i think that the knowledge of the development deepens further if it visits hokkaido old main office building which is famous for red brick from here and Hokkaido University etc.
Very cute museum with a ton of history and a lovely staff (several English speaking docents were there when we went). Conveniently located and very reasonable pricing (only a couple bucks per person). Highly recommend this as a quick stop for anyone visiting Sapporo who wants to learn some Hokkaido history. It was far more enlightening than I expected it to be.
Fabulous unique place! Lots of history, great stories, brilliant mechanical workings of the clock... VERY friendly staff with good english
