“Nice place to take some photos”

Former Hokkaido Government Office Building
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Former Hokkaido Government Office Building is a red building located in the central of Sapporo city. It is a nice place to walk around for sightseeing and take some photos. If you have a few hours to walk around Sapporo it's worth a visit.

I was caught off guard when i saw this building. Since amidst all the city buzz there is just this one building that stands out and looks different. It was very nice to see though.

Like any other colonial looking building, its facade is like... OK lah. But with SNOW...yes, it makes a lot difference. I was lucky cos it snowed heavily the night before. The whole place become so magical! Yes, only when there is snow. Hence, non-winter periods, pls make this your by-the-way stop only...and not a must-see.

The building itself has become a museum, and is free of charge. But unless you have a deep interest in Japanese history and old governance.... maybe just enter for the warmth (if it is winter) and use the restrooms. Kinda...."YAWN" place....
