Art Park and Sculpture Garden : Sapporo

Lots of curious things happened when I was staying at the Sapporo area in the northern Hokkaido region of Japan during the summer. Happened a few times that I took a bus hoping to get to one attraction and then through some misunderstanding and miscommunication with the local Japanese ended up visiting a completely different attraction. You can checkout my tale of ending up in Takino Suzuran Hillside National Government Park.

Once that unexpected detour was over, I did manage to finally make it to the Sapporo Art Park and Sculpture Garden (札幌芸術の森センター). A wonderful large park with several walking tracks with large sculptures and art everything. It’s somewhat of an open-air museum, like others I saw in various places around Japan (e.g., Hakone Open-Air Museum). I spent around 3 hours strolling around the park enjoying the green and the funky art.

Overall, turned out to be a wonderful day, despite and perhaps even because of the unexpected detours and attractions along the way. That’s Japan for you.
