Sapporo TV Tower, standing 147.2 meters tall, is situated in the heart of the
city of Sapporo. This landmark has been a popular attraction since its opening
in 1957. It takes about a 60 second elevator ride from the third floor to the
observation platform at 90.38 meters above the ground.
The tower overlooks Odori Park, which is a beautiful park that adorns flowers
from season to season and hosts various international events for citizens and
tourists throughout the year. Visitors on the observation platform can enjoy a
view of the whole city as far as the Sea of Japan and the magnificent Ishikari
Plains in the background.
