    Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill

    Hitsujigaoka is located in the gentle hills on the southeastern side of the city, where it offers a panoramic view over Sapporo and the Ishikari Plain. Do not be surprised at the number of sheep you see grazing on the hills as hitsujigaoka, roughly translated, means, "sheep hill." Located here is a bronze statue of Dr. William S. Clark, the American who established Hokkaido University in 1876, which is a popular prop for photos. The view over the hills is particularly impressive at sunset. There is also an area for barbecuing mutton in the Sapporo style that is called "Genghis Khan."
