Sapporo City Information Museum - located in the west of Datong Park, its predecessor is a court, the building is Western-style classical shape, there is a building-style stained glass window, very beautiful. It displays the personal introduction of Sapporo-born painter and cartoonist Billus, and reproduces Billus'studio and his collection. The history and development of Sapporo are also introduced.
Looking at Datong Park, at the end is Sapporo City Library. The criminal court should be. I'm not expecting to enter at will. After reading the introduction, it is said that the outer wall of the building is made of soft rock in Sapporo. There are not many pedestrians and the environment is beautiful and quiet.
At the west end of Datong Park, there are some information about urban development.
As soon as you come to the library and look up, you will find the blindfolded Greek mythology "Goddess of the Law" engraved on the front of the building, representing the scale of fairness and the sword of justice. This building was once used as the Court of Appeal, equivalent to today's High Court, and is now open to the general public as the "Sapporo City Library". The sculptures on the walls of the stone hill are the evidence of the Court of Appeal, which embodies the "principles of authority and justice of the law".
Its predecessor is the Sapporo Imperial Academy, which includes the City History Exhibition Hall, the Criminal Court Exhibition Room and so on.
There's a lot of information, but Japanese isn't that strong yet. It's hard to understand.
To understand the history of Sapporo, the reference library must go.
It's interesting to get to know more about Sapporo's history, but I prefer natural landscapes.
