The First Presidency announced that the newly completed Sapporo Japan Temple will open to the public on Friday, July 8, and the open house will run through Saturday, July 23.

Announced on October 3, 2009, the temple will be dedicated on August 21, following a cultural celebration the night before. 

Taking inspiration from Asian architecture, the 48,480-square-foot temple sits on 9.8 acres and is part of a complex of buildings, including patron housing, temple missionary housing, and the Japan Sapporo Mission home.

The Sapporo Japan Temple is the eighth temple in Asia and the third in Japan, with the Tokyo Japan Temple dedicated in 1980 and the Fukuoka Japan Temple dedicated in 2000. Today, there are more than 127,000 Latter-day Saints in Japan serving in 267 congregations.
