Hokkaido University

Hokkaido University

Hokkaido University’s motto is “boys, be ambitious!” Its campus is full of ambition, history, and nature.

Hokkaido University first opened as Sapporo Agricultural College in 1876. Its historical buildings and elm and gingko trees draw many tourists. The “Elm Forest” located to the left of the main entrance of the University was once the sericulture classroom and is now an information center. We recommend getting a campus map here before walking through the campus. The campus is large and one can easily make a day of walking through it. The Hokkaido University Museum, which is free, is not to be missed. Here, one can see exhibits of scientific samples such as nipponosaurus and specimens of cattle skeletal structure.

We recommend taking a guided tour to maximize your enjoyment of Sapporo’s sightseeing attractions. By walking with a guide who is knowledgeable about Sapporo you won’t miss any of the interesting spots, and you’ll get the inside scoop about the city’s history that you won’t find in any guide book. For the sights centered in the city there’s the Sapporo Chamber of Commerce Sightseeing Volunteer Guided Tour; if you’d like to extend out to the outskirts there’s the Yumedaichi Hokkaido Guide Taxis, and if you’d like a closer look at Japanese traditions through visiting temples there’s the Kamokamogawa Nostalgia Guided Tour. Which course is best for you?
