Giant TV Tower in Sapporo | Hokkaido

Located on the edge of Odori Park, Sapporo TV Tower is a popular landmark of Hokkaido. The top of the observation deck stands at approximately 90 meters above the ground with a gorgeous 360° view of Sapporo. Built in 1957 by the same architect of Tokyo Tower (Tachu Naito), the tower has five floors and two functioning elevators for guests to use. The first (ground) floor includes an information center and stores. The second floor features a multipurpose hall and administration office, while the third floor has a souvenir shop, restaurant, and elevator services to the observation deck. There are also shopping and dining options connected through the basement of the tower in the Aurora Town shopping arcade and Tele-chika Gourmet food court. After a little more than halfway up the tower are digital clocks (65 meters above the ground) on each side of the tower donated by Matsushita Electrical Industrial Co. Like many Japanese cities and landmarks, Sapporo Tower's official mascot is named Tawakkie with merchandise available at the stores in the tower. While the Tower used to stand out in Sapporo, the observation deck remains a popular tourist spot despite the increase in tall buildings in the surrounding area. Couples can also rent out the observation deck after the tower closes for 30 minutes at a time (reservation required).
