Hokkaido: The Clock Tower and Nakajima Koen

After visiting the Former Government Office, we headed to the Sapporo Clock Tower and Nakajima Koen.


On the way to the clock tower, we saw this great crow eating some fried chicken. It made me laugh, so I figured I would share!

Cork sculptures

We also saw some fabulous cork sculptures!

This is the outside of the clock tower!


This is a model of a welcome dinner for a new teacher. The red meat is deer, and the white meat is swan. I didn’t even know that people ate swan until today, really.

This is a model showing how to clock in the tower works.

Horse carriage

We saw this cute horse carriage outside of the clock tower.

After the clock tower, we went to Nakajima Koen.

Nakajima Koen was creepy on a few levels.

For example, this building…


And really, what is up with this creepy tentacle playground???

Fox warning

There was a sign warning you not to feed foxes, but quite sadly, we saw none.


There was a pretty waterfall at Nakajima Koen.


Also, Japan loves moving buildings. They moved this one from Shiga Prefecture to Hokkaido. That’s pretty far, BTW.

    Beautiful pictures! The crow is sort of scary, and he looks gigantic!

    Is he related to a vulture? Looks scary, indeed!
