Sapporo Clock Tower

Beautifully Illuminated Pure White Symbol of the Northland, Sapporo

Built in 1878 according to the design set forth by Professor Clark, the building was intended to be used for a training center for the Sapporo Agricultural University (the former school before it became Hokkaido University). The symbol of Sapporo tells time to the citizens with hourly bells. After sunset, the building is lit up, adding a dab of pure white color to the grey business district.

Motoo Marumaru's

Point to Note!

The retro exterior is highlighted when lit up, giving a sense of serenity as though you have slipped back in time.
