What people are saying:

Healing Travel|Hokkaido Travel Guide Place of travel-Hokkaido Agency's former headquarters [Address]: Kita 3-jo Nishi 6-chome, Chuo-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan [Ticket]: Free [Style]: Architecture, cultural venues 【Opening Hours】: 08:45-17:30 (January 1st-December 31st Monday-Friday) Not open to the public: (January 1st-December 31st Saturday-Sunday) [Recommended play time]: 1~2h One of my favorite places in Sapporo is the Old Town Hall. Especially when I first met Hokkaido, I saw the beauty of this place. The former main office of the Hokkaido Agency was originally the highest administrative building in Hokkaido. Built in 1888, it is a major landmark in Sapporo. This red brick and green tiled Baroque building is a symbol of the pioneering era of Hokkaido and is affectionately called the "red brick house" by the locals. The museum has the Hokkaido Literature Museum and the Hokkaido History Gallery, which are open for free viewing by the public. The museum basically maintains the style of the past. You can see many cultural relics about the development history of Hokkaido here. I think the four appearances of the old hall, if you have time, you can take a look. The appearance during the day, the appearance of snow during the day, the appearance of snow at night, the appearance of snow at night, the most recommended is the appearance of snow at night, be sure to see! A red brick house like a fairy tale, the sky is snowing, there are bright lights hanging on the trees in the snow, and Christmas joyous songs are all around, and it feels like walking into a fairy tale world~so beautiful~ [Traffic suggestion]: Take the subway "Namboku Line", "Toho Line" or JR to "Sapporo Station" and walk for about 8 minutes; Take the subway "North-South Line", "Tozai Line", "Toho Line" to "Odori Station" and walk for about 9 minutes.

Additional Information


The old red brick building of the Former Hokkaido Government Office Building is an iconic landmark of Sapporo. A symbol of the pioneering era of Hokkaido, this neo-baroque style building is affectionately called the "Red Brick House" by locals and it is very popular among tourists. It is a great place to take pictures, particularly in the winter when snow covers the red bricks and produces a very romantic atmosphere.
