Buildings Like Miniature Can Be Seen -Sapporo TV Tower-
July 6th, 2017
Sapporo TV Tower (札幌テレビ塔) is a tower for broadcasting in the east end of Odori Park in Sapporo and its height is 147.2 m. It was built for TV waves of NHK (日本放送協会) adjacent to the Sapporo TV Tower in 1956 and has been known as a landmark of Sapporo and one of famous school trip spots. It becomes more popular a night view spot as well as a daytime view spot because Sapporo has been chosen Top 3 Night Views in Japan with Nagasaki (長崎) and Kobe (神戸). By the way, a bungee jumping commemorated 60 the anniversary is held. Participants can junp from a place at 30 m above sea level. An only observation deck is chraged.
The Sapporo TV Tower is roughly divided into 4 areas, Gourmet Area (グルメエリア) on the 1st basement floor and the 2nd basement floor, Entrance Court Area (エントランスコート) on the 1st floor, Ssky Lounge (スカイラウンジ) on the 3rd floor and and Obserbatory Deck (展望台) at 90.38 m at above sea level, and visitors can enjoy panoramic views from the observation deck. Tourists can enjoy souvenirs and dishes at the Gourmet Area, the Entrance Court Area and the Ssky Lounge. By the way, TV Dad often happened to be seen is a mascot for the Sapporo TV Tower, and seems to be popular.
There are observation places, a resting place, a souvenir shop and TV Dad Shrine (テレビ父さん神社) at the observation deck and its size is not large. But I was interested in Sapporo Townscape like a miniature from the place with 90 m in height. Because Okurayama Observation Deck (大倉山展望台) was seen closely from the observation deck, the tourists that happened to be there changed their schedule and would visit the Okurayama Observation Deck. That trip sounds good, too.
