Travel Guide - Sapporo Clock Tower

InformationInformation

The building of Sapporo Clock Tower was built in 1878 by the advice from William Smith Clark, a professor who established the Sapporo Agricultural College (Today's Hokkaido University). The building was originally a military exercise hall of the college, then the clock tower with a pendulum clock made by E. Howard & Co. was added onto the building in 1881. This is the Japan's oldest working clock tower which has continued to chime the hour over 130 years since then. The building is registered as an important cultural property.
