Sapporo TV Tower

1 Chome Odorinishi, Chuo Ward, Sapporo, Hokkaido, 060-0042

The Basics

Take the elevator 60 seconds from the third floor to the observation deck for unobstructed, 360-degree views from 295 feet (90 meters) off the ground. On the lower floors, you’ll find an information center, shops, and restaurants. The tower is connected to the Aurora Town shopping center in the basement.

To save time at the entrance, purchase your admission ticket to the observation deck online in advance. Or, book a private trip to the observation deck after the tower closes. Many city sightseeing tours include a stop at the tower, along with other highlights such as Odori Park, the Former Government Building, and Sapporo Beer Museum.

When to Get There

The views from the tower are good at any time of the year, as long as the day is clear. For the classic daytime Sapporo city view, visit around noon, when the sun is high in the sky. Or go to watch the sun set, and stay until the city lights come on at night. Winter views are also beautiful, especially when thousands of light bulbs illuminate Odori Park.

Underground Shopping Centers

Underneath Odori Park you’ll find two shopping malls: Aurora Town (which runs parallel with the park to Sapporo TV Tower) and Pole Town (which runs perpendicular to the park, from JR Sapporo Station to Susukino). Visit the tower, then shop and dine to your heart’s content.
