Featuring a red brick construction and central dome, Former Hokkaido Government Office Building remains one of the country's rare examples of Neo-Baroque architecture. The historic landmark boasts a distinctive appearance based on government buildings from the American state of Massachusetts. Built in 1888 and rebuilt in 1911, the structure features a colorful flower garden, arched windows, block rooftops, and multiple protruding chimneys. Head inside to check out a small museum on the second floor, home to a collection of artifacts and displays chronicling the history of the island and the city. Keep in mind that many of the exhibit descriptions inside the building do not have English translations.

Former Hokkaido Government Office Building Reviews
홋카이도 도청 구청사이고 홋카이도 개척 당시부터 사용하던 도청이었습니다. 지금은 전시관으로 사용하고 있고 많은 관광객들이 찾는 관광명소입니다. 오래된 건물 자체의 운치도 있고 주변 정원과 잘 어울려 아름다운 장소입니다. 내부 입장은 무료이고 내부에는 여러 전시공간이 있지만 한국어 설명이 거의 없어서 아쉬웠습니다. 걸을때마다 들리는 삐그덕 소리가 말해주듯이 ... more »It was a city of Hokkaido eavesdropping offices and was used since the time of hokkaido's pioneering eavesdropping. It is now used as an exhibition hall and is a popular tourist attraction. The old building itself is also a beautiful place to mingle with the surrounding gardens. The room was free and there were many exhibition spaces inside, but there was very little Korean explanation. It's a building with a long history, as the squeak yin sounds you hear every time you walk, so it's a building that's more old-fashioned than modern. If you're visiting Sapporo, it's a good place to stay.
今迄札幌を訪ねる事は有っても、遠目から見るだけで、中を見学する事は無かったです。10年振りでしょうか、建物・展示物・北方領土等々。どさくさに紛れて火事場泥棒に領土を略奪されたこと、それを死守する為に戦って亡くなられた軍人・民間人の方々、もっと多くの方々に訪ねて頂き歴史を再確認して頂けたらと思います。 more »I had never visited Sapporo before, but i never saw it from a distance. It's the first time in 10 years, buildings, exhibits, northern territories, etc. I hope that more people will visit and reaffirm their history, such as the looting of their territory by fire-fire thieves, and the soldiers and civilians who died fighting to defend them.
It is pretty good, free tour of the building. Most exhibits only have descriptions in Japanese tho.
It's nice of Hokkaido government still open to public, however, the building itself has been worn out, if they can renovation or maybe charge for entry.
