On the 38th floor of the JR Tower sits an observatory with a breathtaking view of Sapporo city. From 160 meters, visitors can get an incredible 360-degree panoramic view of the downtown area. On clear days, Otaru and the Ishikari Coast are even visible in the distance. The view of Sapporo’s nightlife from the observatory has also become quite popular in recent years, especially after it was selected as one of Japan’s top three nighttime landscapes. Visitors can relax and take in this incredible view while indulging in sweets from the comfort of the adjoined cafe.
