m_171211

The clock tower also called “Tokeidai” by the local, was built in 1878 as a theatrical hall of the Sapporo Agricultural School, present day Hokkaido University. It is well known for its red roof and white walls and its main characteristic is the wooden architecture, popular in the mid and western regions of America during the frontier era. The bell in the tower rings every hour to announce the time to the city.
