Sapporo Clock Tower reviews
Nice to see, but don’t make a trip to this part of town just for the clock tower. It’s surprisingly small and interesting to look at for about 30 seconds; not much beyond that. more »
Enjoyed the easy walk about town, from the eki to the parks and to the clocktower; one can stroll easily and observe so many interets and beautiful things; more »
Center of everything. Nice view in all season. There a restaurant inside to get great view on too.
The clock tower has a history. Adult has to pay a small fee to get in to get a glimpse of its past. Upstairs one can take a good look at the clock work - quite impressive mechanically.
