Travel Guide - Seikatei


Seikatei was built by the Hokkaido Development Commission in 1880 as a reception hall for the distinguished guests.
The Emperor Meiji visited here during his trip to Sapporo in 1881.
The building features both Japanese and Western-style.
It is located in Kairakuen park, the oldest park in Sapporo.
