This 2-story wooden building is a symbol of the city and the early era of Hokkaido's development. It was constructed in 1878 as a drill hall of the Sapporo Agricultural College, the first institution for agricultural studies in Japan. Among the students was the agricultural economist, educator and author Nitobe Inazo, who wrote "Bushido: The Soul of Japan". The large clock tower with four faces was purchased from a Boston manufacturer. It is a 10-minute walk from JR Sapporo Station.

The Clock Tower is of great value as a historic site of Sapporo Agricultural College. When the Agricultural College was moved in 1903, the Clock Tower (military drill hall) has been leased to Sapporo Ward. But later on the Ward purchased the Clock Tower and moved it in its current location. Its because of the construction of Kita 2-jo Avenue.
