Tokeidai (Clock Tower)
Tokeidai (Clock Tower) Review
For millions of Japanese, this little white-clapboard Russian-style meetinghouse defines Sapporo. Built in 1878 as the drill hall for students of Sapporo Agricultural College (now Hokkaido University), it has become the city's symbol on souvenir packaging. It even graces the label of Sapporo beer. A bit underwheming, Tokeidai contains photographs and documents telling the region's history and a clock from Boston. It's also a handy landmark for finding your way around the city.
