Sapporo Clock Tower Reviews

Center of everything. Nice view in all season. There a restaurant inside to get great view on too.
The clock tower has a history. Adult has to pay a small fee to get in to get a glimpse of its past. Upstairs one can take a good look at the clock work - quite impressive mechanically.
