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.
There is an entrance of JR Tower Observation Deck T38 (JRタワー展望室T38) on the 6th floor of the Sapporo Stellar Place, and a ticket is sold there. Visitors will go to the top floor, 38th floor, after getting on an elevator. Threre is an observation deck at the 38th floor, and the visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the city of Sapporo along windowds. In addition, there are a cafe, a souvenir shop, restrooms with a view, a piano and art works on the 38th floor, and sometimes a mini concert is held.
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.
