Former Hokkaido Government Office Building, Sapporo

2.0
Featuring a red brick construction and central dome, Former Hokkaido Government Office Building remains one of the country's rare examples of Neo-Baroque architecture. The historic landmark boasts a distinctive appearance based on government buildings from the American state of Massachusetts. Built in 1888 and rebuilt in 1911, the structure features a colorful flower garden, arched windows, block rooftops, and multiple protruding chimneys. Head inside to check out a small museum on the second floor, home to a collection of artifacts and displays chronicling the history of the island and the city. Keep in mind that many of the exhibit descriptions inside the building do not have English translations.

  • It is pretty good, free tour of the building. Most exhibits only have descriptions in Japanese tho.
  • It's nice of Hokkaido government still open to public, however, the building itself has been worn out, if they can renovation or maybe charge for entry.
