Sapporo Art Park

Sapporo Art Park
This place is written as [札幌芸術の森美術館] in Japanese.

The south side of Sapporo, it is located in Minami-ku(南区). Sapporo Art Park is so distant from Sapporo Central Area that people usually go there by car. For that reason, it seems less crowded during the week. You can enjoy hiking with many sculptures even if in winter.

Snow light Festival(雪あかりの祭典)is held every year in the museum park in the end of January. It is sad for visitors because the light festival is just one day, 25th Jan 2020. We show you this year’s festival photos.
