“gigantic sculptures”

Moerenuma Park is a comprehensive park in Sapporo that is intended to be the base of the “Circular Greenbelt Concept” that combines the green spaces of the city of Sapporo within a loop. Construction commenced in 1982, and the park had its grand opening in 2005. Sculptor Isamu Noguchi created the basic design based on the concept of “the whole being a single sculpture.” The fountain and hills form many geometric shapes in the expansive grounds, facilities for play equipment and so forth are arranged in an orderly manner, and the landscape can be enjoyed as a fusion of nature and art. Cherry blossoms bloom in the spring, and the fountain and wading pool facilities are open to make for a refreshing Sapporo summer. Fall brings foliage, and you may enjoy cross-country skiing and sledding across the snow-covered landscape during winter. The park has attractions for all seasons. In addition, the park was converted from a waste treatment plant, and an air-conditioning system was installed in the Glass Pyramid, an indoor facility, that uses the natural, region-specific energy of snow. It is also an attraction from a nature conservation perspective.

A huge park on the outskirts of Sapporo with lots of gigantic sculptures. It feels very modern and relaxing. It definitely feels different than the usual attractions you see in Japan.

renting a bicycle is the best way to explore the park.

I feel lucky to have been in this park. Sure, there are a lot of parks in Japan but I consider this as one of the best I have been to. At the entrance, they have a bicycle renting shop. I thinks its a good idea that they have it because when you get inside the park, you'll see how wide it is with different areas. Walking around would eat so much of your time especially if you're following a tight itinerary. They also have a fountain show 3x a day.
