Sapporo TV Tower

A landmark of Sapporo with 360-degree panoramic views

The 147.2-meter-high "Sapporo TV Tower" stands at the east end of Odori Park.

Construction of the tower began in 1956 when television broadcasting began in Sapporo, and in 1957, an observatory was completed where visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of Sapporo. It is a landmark tower loved by many citizens and tourists.

From the observatory, which is approximately 90 meters above the ground, visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of Mount Teine and Okurayama Champs to the west, and the Toyohira River and Ishikari Plain to the east. When the weather is fine, you can see the Ishikari Plain and even the Sea of Japan in the distance. The scenery of Odori Park, which changes with the seasons, is also an enjoyable experience. It is a prime location for viewing events such as the White Illumination and the Sapporo Snow Festival.

The southeast side of the observatory is a single pane of glass that extends from your feet to the ceiling. The name of this window is "Kowaso" ("scary window").

There is also a special plan that allows you to reserve the observation deck for 30 minutes after the close of business. This is a great way to surprise your loved one or create memories for your anniversary.
