K-On - Observation Hill

In episode 7 of season 2 of K-On we can see Megumi Sokabe sitting near a statue at the end of the episode. This statue is located on the Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill in Sapporo, so I went to take a look. The closest subway station is Fukuzumi Station where you can take a bus that goes all the way to the top of the hill.

Statue of Dr. William Smith Clark. The statue has the saying "Boys, be ambitious!" on it which was said by him.

Up on this hill is also a Sapporo Snow Festival museum.

Among other things they have models of some snow sculptures that were made, including this one of Sazae-san which is the longest-running anime series.

And one of One Piece.
