Sapporo Grand Hotel

The Sapporo Grand Hotel is an historic hotel in the Chūō district of Sapporo, Japan. It is said to have been constructed at Prince Chichibu's suggestion in 1928, while he was on a skiing trip, that the city needed a western-style hotel. The Grand Hotel first opened its doors in 1934 and was at the time of its construction the tallest building in the city. It benefited considerably from the Japanese Imperial Army's decision to use that part of Hokkaidō for military maneuvers during the 1930s.
