The key is not only to look at the landscape but also to look for interesting spots; other than this, a miraculous well to see directly beneath the tower and an entire glass surface window is also available.

When you come down to the ground level, walk away from the tower. As you move further away, you can see the tower complementing the surrounding city of Sapporo even from a distance since it's tall. Enjoy shooting unique pictures from your own locations. The night views of the lit-up tower are highly recommended.
