Moerenuma Park, Sapporo

4.4
#2 of 16 in Nature in Sapporo
Stroll through the exquisitely designed and geometrically perfect grounds of Moerenuma Park. Converted from a waste treatment facility and designed by Japanese American artist Isamu Noguchi, the park represents a monumental feat of urban design and a fusion of nature and art. Take part in a plethora of activities in any season, such as visiting the Moere Beach--a small pond opened during the summer--or even try skiing across the snow-covered grounds during the winter. Kids will be able to let loose on the park playgrounds, and couples can opt for a romantic stroll along the 150 m (500 ft) canal. You can hire a bike to explore all the park's attractions, such as the panoramic views from the peak of Mt. more, or the iconic glass pyramid. Put Moerenuma Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sapporo trip planner .

  • This park is okay for a bike ride or view from the top of the hill. The best part is the fountain, which sprays in various patterns.  more »
  • Artificial mountain in the Park. View from the top of quite nicely! And tennis courts and jogging in the park fun. The fireworks display is a must see!

  • Moved by bus from the center of Sapporo. Took time, but almost gone stiff is good where you can. There is a hill in the heart of the Park, so I climbed. This is the view from the top! Just windy day is not to be flown, such as hat is important.

  • Beautiful landscape. A great option for a day trip out of the city of Sapporo. We got some snacks with us and rent a bicycle to get around. There is a bicycle rental post at the park. Bicycle has a lock so you can leave them with no worries if you want to go in the glass pyramid or climb up on of the hills for an observation point. (No bicycle allowed on the trails to the 2 highest observation points in the park) Fountain was closed when we were there due to an earthquake but still it was worth the visit.
  • I fell in love into this Park. Isamu Noguchi created the master plan for one of the best leisure park in the World. So heartbreaking he passed away after he completed the Master Plan in 1988, could not see the final inauguration of this great Park. It’s a privilege to spend free time, reading, jogging, cross-country skiing and having fun with the kids who really enjoy the unique designs of playgrounds and play-mountains.
  • Very nice park. In winter the hill is a great place for sledding.
  • Beautiful Place to visit specially now with fresh powder snow
  • Simply amazing monumental landscape and buildings. Worth a visit and walk around.
