Welcome to Sapporo – a city home to picturesque summer days, Siberian-style winters and a treasure trove of hidden gems. There is arguably no better place to get a complete 360-degree view over this wonderful city than from the top of the Sapporo TV Tower.
It's not a particularly tall tower by any means, especially compared to its neighbour, the Tokyo Tower. However, it does have one thing that the others don't... It's located in Sapporo.
Since 1956 Sapporo TV Tower has been the most prominent landmark of Sapporo. The tower is visible from most areas of Sapporo. The tower was designed by the same architect that design the famous Tokyo Tower, with the intention of becoming a similar landmark. This landmark is a great indicator on where you are in Sapporo. From the observation deck, you can see all of Odori Park. One of the unique features is the digital clock that is on all 4 sides. It was donated by an electronic company who thought it would draw attention to the tower.
If you have a chance to go to the Sapporo TV Tower around the Snow Festival Time do it because the view is worth it.
