The Sapporo Clock Tower is the most disappointing sightseeing spot in Japan?

The historical and cultural symbol of Sapporo, but..

The Sapporo clock tower has a terrible reputation. It was selected the most disappointing sightseeing spot in Japan. When we visited it, we realised it was way smaller than we thought.


The entrance fee & opening hour

When we reached it, it was already too late to visit inside. The opening hour is from 8:45 until 17:10

The entrance fee is not that high,  200 Yen for an adult and children under 18 years old are free. We are not sure if it is worth to visit the inside. But if you want to visit the Sapporo clock tower indeed, you should enter here at least 17:00.

Though this clock tower has a bad reputation, as an icon of Sapporo it still has a big value. If they see a photo with the clock tower, most of the Japanese people can understand that it was taken in Sapporo.
