Good fit for the tall people - ZARA Sapporo store. A Spanish clothing brand seen in London's Oxford Street, Tokyo's Shibuya, etc. A UNIQLO type shop targeting at the lower-end market but much more stylish I think.

The people in Hakodate are renown for being very rough. There are many teenage gangs (Bousouzoku or Teamer) and if you see the Hakodate car number plate in Naichi (Honshu), better watch out! Several cases have been reported so far that the Kansai-jin tourists were stabbed to death by them. . . Also, Hakodate Station and Goryokaku (The Fortress) areas are notorious for drug dealing and gun smuggling, partly from Russia.

HOLY SHIT!!!!

There are buildings on top of a valley?!?!?!?

Wow. This is the first time I've ever seen strucutres rising from a valley/agricultural plain.

A world first! This is truly unbelievable.

No one has ever attempted constructing buildings in front of a mountain pass or valley simply because of the fear that it would create if a landslide or any snowfall (during Winter time) could decimate the area.

But this is just mindblowing and unexpected.

I've never seen any other attempt to build rising structures on a mountain/valley.............until seeing this one right now.

Totally defying convention.

Thanks EMS for all the good stuff about my temporary home, Sapporo! Do you think that 500M tower in Oodori will actually be built?

Most likely. Anything is possible in the current construction boom.

Not merely Tokyo Tower but Sapporo TV Tower, Nagoya TV Tower, Kobe Port Tower and Yokohama Marine Tower will be rebuilt into super towers.
It's high time those old towers had to be reconstructed.

I think this deserves more attention.

I do admit that I am memerized by it. Mesmerized in a sense that it is very RARE and UNUSUAL for buildings to be built in countryside locations such as this one.

Guys,

What are your opinions about these buildings? Any comments/suggestions/feedback is accepted.

I just want to know about the public's opinion (especially the opinion of the Japanese here at SSC) regarding these structures on a countryside (which has NEVER seen before in any other place in the world).

Actually those are not residential buildings but these are for the hotel....or simply put a place to stay while in your that ski/golf resort. I'm not sure though if you can reside or live there permanently.

That's why I'd like to know more about these buildings. The homepage is in Japanese and babelfish will give you crappy translations.

It is important that we get as much info as we can about these buildings (which I believe is not available in any other place on earth atm).
