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.
The Hokkaido University Campus Walking Tour, which introduces the highlights of the Hokkaido University campus grounds, will be held every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from June 1 to October 30, 2016. Please click here for more information.
