sapporo - tokeidai - clock tower, sleepless nights

The "Tokeidai" (Clock tower) was originally built as a drill hall for the Sapporo Agricultural College, which was established in 1876 as the first agricultural institute in Japan.

The building was erected in 1878 in the style of wooden architecture used in frontier lands of the United States in those days.

The large clock, manufactured in the U.S.A., has kept telling time since it was installed in 1881.

The Clock Tower, which houses the Exhibit Hall, is now an important national cultural property owned by the City of Sapporo.
