“Not worth the price - if you have a view from your hotel”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

This TV Tower dates from the 1960's when every Japanese city of any merit was putting up towers. No better than most, a little expensive for just the view which can be enjoyed from one of the top floor restaurants or bars at one of the nearby hotels for free. Invest the price of the tower ticket in a glass of the "local" Sapporo Beer.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

The entrance fee was pretty steep and unfortunately all the commentary in the elevator was in Japanese. I went up during the Snow Festival. The view of Odori Park and Mt Moiwa was really pretty.

“not very high up”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

the tv tower isnt very high up, but given that it is located in the middle of odori park, it gives a very nice overall view of central sapporo. It had a great view of the sapporo white illumination in december and i can imagine the wonderful view it will have during the snow festival

“Nice View - Shakes in High Wind”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

It's another tower in another city. The excitement level can only get so high.

You are able to see the lights of Odori Park from the air which is nice but otherwise, this is not the highest of towers. I would not repeat this again. I think the price should be less than half of what they charge for this.

Also note that is moderate wind/flurries there is a noticeable shaking of the tower at the observatory level.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

It's pretty standard for the genre of attractions. Just a viewing platform with the gift shop taking up most of the viewing area.

Still its nice, and the staff was nice and put the elevator commentary on in English. We went up at Night and the Ski Jump and other lights were quite impressive.
