Moerenuma Park, is a global sculptor representing the 20th century. The park is mostly the design of Isamu Noguchi(イサムノグチ), an artist who has worked in a wide range of fields including garden and park environment design and interior design. Within this site (which is the size of about 40 Tokyo Domes) there are playgrounds designed by Isamu Noguchi. There are also cherry woods, a pyramid of glass, and mountains that become symbols. In addition to just being a place to view the art, this open park is a place to play.
