Sapporo Agricultural College Farm No. 2札幌農学校第2農場

Tourist Ranch / Farm

Established in 1877, this is actually the site of the Sapporo Agricultural College (present Hokkaido University) which was conceived by its first Vice-Principal Dr. W. S. Clark, as an agricultural farm for training. One can see at a glance that the structures of the livestock stalls and the grain silos are built for stock raising, in the style of balloon frame architecture, commonly seen in the Midwest U.S.A. during this period. In addition to the fresh grain storage silo built in 1912, said to be the oldest in Hokkaido, there are valuable items on display such as horse-powered machinery imported from the U.S. during the early Meiji period.

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
