Get a prime view of Sapporo from Sapporo TV Tower, a 150 m (490 ft) observation deck in the center of town. This attraction sits within Odori Park, a popular green space and festival ground. Enjoy the park before heading to its eastern end, where you'll find the tower and observation deck that allow you to take in the city's skyline. Even if you don't get the chance to visit this structure, which was built in 1957, be sure to keep an eye out for it at nighttime, when it becomes fully lit up.

Sapporo TV Tower reviews
It has nothing. Just a view of mountain in the distance. The start of Odori park has this TV tower!! more »
Although not particularly high, the TV Tower offers a spectacular view of Sapporo city, especially of Odori Park, since the tower itself is located right at the start of the park itself. more »
We loved this. Gorgeous views of the city of 2.2 million. Maps from several directions name what you're seeing in the city and mountains. Well organized. Modest tourist shop inside. Pretty park outside. Definitely worth the visit.
This is an absolute must do when visiting Sapporo. It gives you a great perspective on the city, but also allows you to see the mountains and countryside beyond (weather permitting). I thought it was funny at the bottom of the stairs it read that you need to climb 3 stories, but as you climb stairs it slowly tells you it's actually more like 6 normal stories. So I had a nice workout thanks to tricky signage! ;) There is a lower elevator if climbing 6 stories is not your thing. The upper elevator, which is enclosed by glass quickly shoots you up to the top. It makes for a nice video if you get a good spot. Anyways, I think you should visit the tower!
