Sapporo Station consists of five platforms that are raised above street level. These raised platforms serve 10 tracks which run in an east-west direction. Two concourses run north-south below the platforms. It has a commercial facility called Paseo under the ground and JR Tower on the south side of the station.
Sapporo Station was opened in 1880 as a Horonai Railway's terminus. A new station building was built in 1881 and it was enlarged as Sapporo developed.
In 1908, the station building was rebuilt because of a fire in 1907. The restored building can be found in the Historical Village of Hokkaidō in Nopporo Forest Park.
The third reconstruction was finished in 1951 and the Sapporo Subway was opened in 1971. An underground shopping center was started in 1972 and a commercial building was opened on the east side of the station in 1978.
Until the 1970s, many passengers from Honshu got off at the station where porters waited for them with the flags of their hotels. However, the number of passengers traveling from Honshu by plane exceeded the number traveling by train in 1977.
The current building was built in 2003. Sapporo Station is now the center of transportation in Hokkaido.
