How to Enjoy Kanjiki Walk

Experience Art in the Winter Sculpture Garden
Sculptures reveal a unique snowy appearance in the snow field. Some usually inaccessible routes are accessible with Kanjiki. Let’s go on a search for unexpected sceneries.

Meet with the Wildlife
Many unknown residents of the Sapporo Art Park live in the Sculpture Garden. You may encounter on your path a squirrel, fox, or rabbit. Footprints left on the snow are the perfect topic for children’s independent study during winter vacation. Footprint sheets are available for those interested.

When leaves have completely fallen in the Sculpture Garden, it is the perfect time for birdwatching! You can observe perching birds such as the varied tit and the japanese tit. Binoculars are rented free of charge at the Art Park Center. Take this opportunity to look for cute wild birds!
Rest at the Children’s Atelier
When tired from the Kanjiki Walk, please have a rest at the Children’s Atelier located inside the Sculpture Garden. You can have a warm drink. There is a vending machine with snacks.
