Super-size art created by a genius artist

  • Nature Walks

Moerenuma used to be an isolated pond located outside Sapporo, but when Sapporo's government decided to reclaim it for landfill and anti-flood, they also decided to renovate it and make it bigger. The plan might have resulted in failure if it wasn't for the support of Mr. Isamu NOGUCHI, a world famous architect.

He devoted his life to the creation of this super artificial art of building and hills. In the hot daytime there is a man-made beach. You can also rent bicycles, and imagine yourself as a main character of the breathtaking art! Mr Noguchi used to say “I always imagine myself as a tiny human being living in the middle of the art when I create” which is a saying I remember while walking. Climbing up the artificial mountains is also fun.. And do not miss the schedule of the fountain which you can check on the internet, it will make you feel as if you are standing on the seashore.

In winter, although not all the facilities are open, there is another chance to try downhill ski, in the purely white field.
