Moerenuma Park was designed by Isamu Noguchi in the late 80's but wasn't opened until 2005, long after his death. The entire park is considered a sculpture but there are several 'attractions' within the park itself. The most prominent is Mt Moere, a man made mountain rising 62m, there's a smaller hill famous for its white path contrasting with the... More

Easy to access and generally a nice and quiet park only a couple of minutes away from down town Sapporo.

Take your own food if you go; we arrived at 1.15 and the only restaurant was full. The only other food place was the coffee shop which had sold everything except some paper bags of cold soggy fries. So nothing to eat and no lunch. The park is a re claimed waste disposal site. It's bleak, windy and unattractive. If... More

Visited the park after reading reviews on the site & I wasn't disappointed. Took bus 68 (for some reason tourist map doesn't mention this) from subway for about 35 minutes & it was a fairly easy journey. I hired a bike for 200 yen for 2 hours. Great value. Beach was shut on Thursdays but that didn't detract from my... More

Getting to the park from downtown took almost an hour. Read couple of reviews on TA describing the various modes of transport to/from the park. What I came to realise is that Bus 6 plies only on weekends and weekdays from 19 July to 17 Aug...so it wasn't an option for us. We took the conventional route describe in the... More

We absolutely loved this park. It is about a one hour ride from the city and I have to state up front that I don't think it is for everybody. It's a massive park with truly gigantic 'sculptures' designed by the famous Japanese-American artists. We were somewhat familiar with his work/ideas which helped... However since his work is very abstract... More

We had some free time in the afternooon and were eager to visit this park designed by a well known sculptor in Japan. Eventhough early April is not a very ideal time to enjoy the space(the grounds are quite saturated with melting snow), we were not disappointed! The whole park is a sculpture itself with many lovely areas to enjoy... More

I went to the park in a Saturday and even it was in weekend it wasn't very crowded. If you rent a bike it will be easier to travel inside of the park. The price of one hour rent is 100 yen. You can also take your tent and have a little camp for the day. There is also a... More

The Moerenuma Park is located north east of Sapporo not so convenient to reach. From the Sapporo station you can take the bus number 59 to the last station. From there it si a 10minutes walk. The Park offers a great combination of sculptures, which are actually more buildings than sculptures, and possibilities for picknick and playground for children. Founded... More
