The statue of Dr. Clark is one of the symbols of Sapporo tourism.
The statue of Dr. Clark is located at Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill.
It can be reached by bus from Fukuzumi Station, the nearest station to Sapporo Dome.
Basically, the statue is the only thing to see, so you can take pictures of the statue and move on. There are also some stores in the park, so you will need to allow extra time for that, but if you can find the time to take the bus, you can basically watch the game at Sapporo Dome, which is the best combination for a quick evening and night game.
