  • Take the elevator of JR Tower next to JR Sapporo Station and go to the 38th floor and you will find an observatory. There is a toll booth on the way and the admission fee is paid 720 yen. It may seem a little expensive, but sapporo city seen from the 38th floor is a great view, you can see a large 360 degree panoramic view. It is really spacious and overlooks Obihiro in the east, Niseko in the west, Mt. Tarumae ahead of Lake Shikotsu in the south, and Ishikari Bay in the north. Because it is next to the station, it is convenient, and there is a café, too and it is possible to do slowly, and it is good to be able to learn the position relation of Sapporo city when going up for a moment in front of Sapporo sightseeing.

  • It was very quiet because it was a weekday morning. The weather was good and the ridge line of the mountain in the distance was clearly seen. I think that it is a place to be able to enjoy it for the person who likes such scenery. If the entrance fee is a little cheaper, i will repeat it when I want to relax.
