Sapporo Concert Hall Kitara
Ranked #48 of 434 things to do in Sapporo
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Kitara took Sapporo into the modern era as there was no real concert hall here until Kitara was built. I think the concert experience is top rate in both large and small halls, but I do have a musically knowledgable friend who does not like the acoustics. I have tried all of the seating areas and do not recommend sitting on the side or behind the orchestra.

One of the best concert hall in the world! Perfect acoustics.
But Sapporo Symphony Orchestra wasn't so good as New York Philharmonic or Wiener Philharmoniker.

In my humble opinion the Kitara concert hall is the best hall in Japan, only to be shared with the suntory hall in Tokyo. The acoustics are really excellent. In case you might be able to visit a concert, please go there ! It is worth it.
the warmth of sound and the ideal reverberance will surely offer an exiting concert experience.

Kitara concert hall is conveniently located in Nikojima koen (Nikojima park) that is accessible by subway.
The concert hall has excellent acoustics and is very nicely made - comfortable for both musicians and visitors.
We've been to Sapporo Symphonic Orchestra performance, the hall was full and the performance was amazing! Really enjoyed and left with a strong desire to come back again and again. Highly recommended to all Sapporo visitors.

The subperb acoustics and top-notch organ make this a great place for classical music. It's the centerpiece of the Pacific Music Festival, an international event held in July.
