Heading west on Kita Sanjo Dori, you’ll see the grand Former Hokkaido Government Office, known by the nickname “red brick office,” standing as the street comes to a dead end. Constructed in 1888, the building is an example of American neo-baroque architecture. Architectural details such as the warped glass created in the Meiji Period and the heat-retaining double doors in an ornamental frame exude functional beauty. The building and its exhibits on Hokkaido history are open to the public. Ask the volunteer staff for explanations about the building to appreciate its full depth.
