Half day Sapporo city : (reommendation at the secretariat)
The population of Sapporo city is about 1900,000, 1/3 of that in Hokkaido. This large city was opened in Meiji era (about 150 years ago) from the wild forest. One of the histrorical momument is a athete practice house of that Hokkaido University built at these days. It has four clocks at the center roof, and is researved at the central part of the city, called as "Clock Tour" (Tokei-Dai). The tour bus will pass by Clock Tour.
Then the bus circulates the Odori-park, broadcasting tour ("Telebi-Tou", 147m high, painted in red), and the bus introduces you to a hill, Okura-yama, where the Olympic large hill competition was fighted. Still this winter the jumping competitions for world cup competition were held. From the top of ski-lift you enjoy the wonderful scenary of the city even in summer. At the lower part of jumping area, a sport musium for winter games waits for your visit. In the musium you may experience the sportmanship for yourself.
Finally the bus drives to Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill, where the the monument of Americal professor, Willim Smith Clark, stands. He was employed by the Japanese gornment to introduce the western agriculture in Japan as the teacher of Hokkaido university, and left famous message, "Boys, be ambious!". and he talked to the student as "Be ambitious not for money or for selfish aggrandizement, not for that evanescent thing which men call fame. Be ambitious for the attainment of all that a man ought to be." However, it is a pity that all the journior high school students in Japan learns only first three words in their textbook.
The foot bath is available between May and September. In summer the city of Sapporo laid out beyond the green grassy fields is beautiful, and it makes for a great photo opportunity.
