The iconic monument at the centre of the park is the HIGAMARI glass pyramid, which opened in 2003. The sun shines in throughout the atrium and makes the space feel really open.

    The French restaurant on the ground floor is popular for its takeaway boxed lunches and its eat-in dinners with excellent evening views. Also, make sure you check out the Isamu Noguchi Gallery on the 3rd floor. The ocean fountain in the middle of the park offers an impressive program that rises up to 25 metres high 3 or 4 times a day. It's lit up at night, so head here after dark for some fantastic light and water spectacles.

    • Neprecēts

    Sapporo Starlight Dome is the only private planetarium in Hokkaido, about a 5-minute walk from JR Teine Station. Of course, it's cool to enjoy the real night sky, but what about gazing at an awesome digital representation of the starry sky while listening to music inside a planetarium? This venue became a stage model for the anime series Kimi ni Todoke

    The dome, which is 15 meters in diameter and has a seating capacity of 160, puts on programs of about 40 minutes, 3 to 4 times a day, complete with commentary based on themes like "Stars" and "Aurora". Note that reception opens 30 minutes before each program, and you can't enter the museum halfway through a showing. On a special stage with a grand piano, there are Planetarium Stage concerts held from time to time. These are well worth checking out if you fancy enjoying some music and starry skies at the same time.
