Fodor's Expert Review Tokeidai

Sapporo Library/Archive

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. A bit underwhelming, Tokeidai contains photographs and documents telling the region's history and a clock from Boston.
