In Green Pasture Lands Photo Is Taken with Sapporo Dome in Popular Dr. Clark Pose -Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill in Sapporo-

June 17th, 2017

Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill (羊ヶ丘展望台) is on a hill in Toyohira ward, Sapporo city and opened a business in 1959. It is famous for a statue of Dr. Clark (クラーク博士の立像) that is familiar words "Boys be ambitious!" and looking over Sapporo Dome, and is surrounded by pasture lands, so visitors can feel comfortable. Sheep seem to be released in the pasture pasture lands as its name suggests (羊 means sheep in Japanese language), the sheep were at a sheep hut unfortunately when I visited here. There are Monument for Yujiro Ishihara and His Song (恋の町札幌歌謡費), Clark's Departure Bell (旅立ちの鐘), Sheep Hut (羊の家), Clark's Chapel (クラークチャペル), Sapporo Snow Festival Museum (さっぽろ雪まつり資料館), Sapporo Blanc Birch Chapel (札幌ブランバーチチャペル), Hitsujigaoka Rest House (羊ヶ丘レストハウス) and Austrian Pavillion (オーストリア館) as well as the Statue of Dr. Clark on the site. Admission fee is JPY 520. A parking lot is free of charge.

When I read Tweets, Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill seems to be popular.

Speaking of the Statue of Dr. Clark, Hokkaido University and Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill are famous. Originally there was the Statue of Dr. Clark only in the Hokkaido University, but it was too much popular, and its popularity obstructed school management. In order to solve this problem, the Statue of Dr. Clark was built in 1976 here. This Dr. Clark is known as pointing to something with one finger. The pointing with one finger is not Nishioka (西岡) or a goal. It is the everlasting truth. It sounds difficult to me... By the way, Dr. Clark pose is standard when the visitors take a photo with the Statue of Dr. Clark.
