Sapporo hitsujigaoka observation hill


Spot information

Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill was established in 1959 in a corner of Hokkaido Agricultural Experiment Station. Despite its location in the metropolis Sapporo, flocks of sheep in the grasslands and the beautiful Ishikari Plain can be seen from here. The impressive view changes through the seasons. The Dr. Clark statue, symbolic of Hokkaido’s pioneers, can be found here as well as a wedding hall, souvenir shops, and a rest house offering all-you-can-eat Mongolian mutton barbeque. The area is loved as a tourist attraction representative of Sapporo and Hokkaido.
