Is this a park? An art exhibition? A bit of both? It's an area with random structures - a wall to walk along, a round hill, a series of walls with bits of household furniture sticking out of them, rocks with a fountain at the top. Parts of the site were closed when I was there and I think the... More

This visit was a waste of time and money. Thought this would be a cool place for the kids to climb around. Spent half an hour stressing that they would fall down a dangerous slope. No recommended for small children

The park was designed by Shusaku Arakawa and his wife Madeline Gins. It seems that he was quite a peculiar man, according to his episode. He once lived with Bob Dylan in NY. Bob Dylan told him "I'm a famous musician" and passed his albums to him. Believe it or not, he threw them away from a window saying "music... More

As noted by others this park could use some tlc, it's not terribly worn out but it sure doesn't look new. The experience is very interesting and I don't think you can experience anything else like it!

If a unique vision of the betterment of human consciousness in a beautiful rural Japanese setting sounds appealing this is your scene. On a clear day, the mountain backdrop is the perfect accent to the main enclosure replete with AstroTurf mounds and bisected concrete furniture. As has been noted the park is not in the best condition, with scaffolding covering... More

Trip advisor's app is pointing to the wrong location, it's wrong by several kilometres. The app will take you to Yoro town office. If coming by public transport and walking, you'll want to get off at Yoro station and save yourself the confusing walk that I took from Mino-takada. The park itself is OK. The mountains in the area really... More

By reading some other reviews of this site (not on TripAdvisor) I had higher hopes for this place. While it is "quirky" it is more artistic expression than true experience. I guess if you are very much into unique artistic expression, this would be a good place. The park is getting a bit ragged after nearly 20 years in use... More
