Sapporo has been really hot recently because we are in the middle of a heatwave. It is probably best not to stay out in the summer heat for too long. With that in mind, today we would like to introduce Sapporo Art Park.
Located on the outskirts of Sapporo City, Sapporo Art Park is a great place to come to admire art not just by seeing, but by hands-on experiences and interacting with others in a beautiful natural environment. As well as an art hall, there is also open air exhibitions that can be enjoyed outside.
At the moment there is currently an exhibition displaying the works of 16th century Bruegel family. There are a range of exhibits displaying Peter Bruegel’s work, his children, as well as grandchildren, spanning a period of around 150 years.
In addition to numerous fascinating pieces of art, there is also a beer garden and Belgian themed café called ‘Paul’s Café’. As well as Peter Bruegel, Paul himself is from the Flanders region in northern Belgium and prepares local cuisine and serves Belgian beers! The café is open from 11th August to 15th August 11:00 – 16:00.
Bruegel Exhibition runs from 28th July to 24th September.
9:45 to 17:30 (August), 9:45 to 17:00 (September).
Address: 005-0864 Sapporo City, Minami Ku, Sapporo Art Park.
Museum opening hours are 9:45 to 17:00 (open until 17:30 throughout 6/1-8/31)
