The Combination of Environmental Improvement and Art

Moerenuma Park is located in the city of Sapporo in Hokkaido, where vast lands and beautiful coasts embrace visitors as well as the locals. I definitely recommend visiting this park. Isamu Noguch, one of the most famous artists and sculptors in Japan, designed it and his concept was to regenerate the land. It had been under construction between 1978 and 2005.


His Artistic ability is demonstrated everywhere

Isamu Nogchi always had an goal for his work, and that is to sculpt nature. Although he had tried to do this early in life, it was hard for him to get recognition and the chance to create the large-scale sculptures. Sapporo city offered him the job of creating their park and he finally got his opportunity. Today the park consists of a small mountain made from recycled waste, a tetra mound created with columns, and a large glass pyramid.


Please enjoy the totality of the park that connects visitors with nature

Moerenuma Park’s construction was completed in 2005 along with the completion of the “fountain of ocean.” It’s a fairly young park as well as its artwork. This park attracts a lot of people because of a concept Isamu Noguchi envisioned in his work and the environmental concept of regenerating old land. Please come and visit the park to feel the combination of the art and nature!
