About
Moerenuma Park is a landscape sculpture Mecca designed by Isamu Noguchi offering distinctive expressions of the four seasons Moerenuma Park is designed by sculpture artist Isamu Noguchi as a work of sculpture art in itself. The park was reborn from a waste disposal site and transformed into an art park representative of Sapporo over a period of 23 years. The grand scale of this project earned it the name “landscape sculpture.” Visitors can enjoy different scenery depending on the time of the day and season. Instead of picturing yourself in a park, you should probably think of yourself as being inside a huge sculpture piece.

Visited with family

Pros:
1) This park can be reached via train and bus. Ensure to read and understand the directions carefully because it can be confusing.
2) Best to visit with a full stomach and bring some drinks and snacks. My family and I visited right before lunch, luckily there was a small cafe inside the park which was quite a walk from the main entrance.
3) There is a bike rental a few meters from the entrance. Suggest to rent one. The park is huge and easier to cycle than walk.
4) There were many attractions to visit but my favorite is the pyramid-shaped museum and cycling around the park.
5) Allot 1 whole day or at least half day to visit. It closes around 5pm so best to start early.
6) It is definitely child-friendly.
7) Best toilet to use is at the pyramid-shaped museum.
8) Wear something comfortable since this is an outdoor place.

The only con I can think of is the insects that appeared around 5pm on the way to the bus station. It was similar to the insects we experienced at the Shiroi Koibito Park.

A must-visit.

The park can be reached by riding a train from Sapporo Station and a bus. Travel time is less than an hour.

The park is filled with man made features like Mount Moere a 62 meters tall and offers great views of the park and the surrounding area and a Louvre like pyramid building made of glass called Hidamari which is a gallery space.

The spacious park includes art installents, hilld, many walking and cycling trails and and much more. Cycling is the best option. It offers great views of the city if you climb to the top of the hills.

Got here in the evening, so only managed to visit the pyramid, and walk around a little. The pyramid is beautiful, with lovely views from the top. The park is also lovely, with lots of sculptures, if only I had more time.

We went here by city bus and got lots of help from fellow passengers to find it. it is one of our most prominent memories of sapporo, and indeed of japan in general.
do NOT miss the fountain show, preferably the one that occurs after dark.

This is a huge public park and we wanted to visit the different attractions like the fountain, the hill and the Glass Pyramid.

We underestimated our time. We came to the park around 4pm and by the time we walked up to the top of the hill, it was sunset already. The walk up was around 20 minutes. It was dark and everything was closed by the time we came down.

The view was amazing at the top as you can see the skyline of downtown Sapporo with the snow mountains in the background. It was a bit chilly too due to the icy winds.

This spot is far from the center of Sapporo city, it takes 50-minutes by the train and local bus. From the nearest bus stop 'Toyohata' it's a 15-minute walk to the center of the park. In this park, there are white birch trees, artificial hills and a pyramid of glass. You can rent a bike for 300 yen per 2 hours to cycle around this big site. The bicycle station is nearby a car parking lot. When I visited this park, it was a sunny day and I could enjoy walking in the great fresh air. Most of the visitors were families with kids. Some of them were playing with a kite. It looked enjoyable.

This park took my breath away. It was quiet when I visited the park and it was so calming to walk around. Viewpoints from some sculptures were breathtaking. I would go back here in a heartbeat!

Landscape park, the territory is pretty big, so it's a lot of walking or you can rent a bike on site. If you want to see it all - be ready to climb a lot of stairs.

This park is famous as great sculptures park designed by Isamu Noguchi.

I love this park since when I was child.
It has beautiful mountains, sculptures and playgrounds For children.

Unbelievably the entrance fee is nothing. Just free!

A little bit far away from Sapporo station but you can go there by bus under ¥500.

The park is big but no worries because it has rental bikes;-)

I totally recommend the park!
