Photos: See the Sapporo Japan Temple Being Constructed

The Sapporo Japan Temple was announced by President Thomas S. Monson on October 3, 2009, along with four other temples: the Brigham City Utah (dedicated September, 23, 2012 by Boyd K. Packer), Concepcion Chile (not yet scheduled for dedication), Fort Lauderdale Florida (dedicated May 4, 2014, by Dieter F. Uchtdorf), and Fortaleza Brazil temples (not yet scheduled for dedication). Ground was broken for the temple on  October 22, 2011, and was overseen by Presiding Bishop Gary E. Stevenson. The temple is anticipated to be finished in 2016.

The Sapporo Japan Temple will be the third temple in Japan, following the Tokyo Japan Temple and the Fukuoka Japan Temple, and the eighth temple in Asia.
