The Sapporo Agricultural College was inaugurated in 1876 with Dr. William S. Clark as its Vice President.  His motto of “Boy Be Ambitious” is still popular today.  Hokkaido University was officially renamed in 1947.

This is a large and sprawling campus with a lot of trees including poplars on a university street appropriately called Poplar Avenue.
