Toward scenic stages of "sora no method"④ ~Former Hokkaido Government Building~

Speaking of "building that symbolizes of Hokkaido" , none other than the Former Hokkaido Government Office Building. For a surprise, this brick building which is known for the "red brick" is used as a junior high school which the leading characters attend.

This building was built in 1888 in a United States-style neo-Baroque style. It played a big role in politics for the Hokkaido over 80 years, and now an important cultural property of Japan.

The red brick with a light-up brings about a little bit different atmosphere. You can't enter inside, but visiting at night is also nice.

So, along with the scene of the animation, let's go around the inside. Here's the entrance of the old provincial office.

The point that is open to the public for free is nice for sightseeing.

If there is enough time, I want you to receive a description from the residing tourism volunteer. You will be able to find many charms that cannot be noticed yourself.

Anyway, it has a really high reproduction. I take my hat off to the sense of production team that makes this place a model of the school.

A variety of materials of Hokkaido history has been also exhibited inside. Let's deepen the knowledge of Hokkaido's own culture and history that is unlike the main island of Japan, such as Ainu culture.
I'll end this introduction by showing you the other seasons of red brick. This is the red brick in autumn...
And this is the red brick in winter. There is a beauty that doesn't change in any seasons.
