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.
