Panoramic View of City of Sapporo from Tallest Building in Hokkaido -JR Tower Observation Deck T38 in Sapporo-

July 10th, 2017

JR Tower (JRタワー) is a shopping and office complex united with Sapporo Station. The commercial complex named Sapporo Stellar Place (札幌ステラプレイス) is famous for enjoying the shopping and tasty foods. The JR Tower built in 2003 has became a new famous tourist attraction in Sapporo. It is a special feature that tourists get off a train at the Sapporo Station and can reach to the tower immediately. Without going out from station buildings, the tourists can go to an obseravatory deck at 160 m above sea level. I was interested in superb views like miniatures from the tallest building in Hokkaido. A night view can be enjoyed in the evening, too. Admission fee was JPY 720.

I was impressed at the restroom with the superb view. A male can enjoy the superb view while relieving themselves at the restroom for men. A female can not enjoy the view at the restroom for women. But a multipurpose accessible restroom is provided, so it seems to allow the women to use the restroom. It was a gorgeous moment anyway.
