Hidamari means sunny place. It is like a winter garden containing shops, restaurants, exhibition spaces and viewpoints. Going on, we come to the 25 metre high Sea Fountain, and then Play Mountain, designed in 1933 for a public project which was never built. Next comes Tetra Mound, a hill topped by a pyramid of steel pipes, each 13 metres long and 2 metres in diameter.
The park has something for children too: the Forest of Cherry Blossoms is a large playground. "Sculptures are to be felt with kids' bottoms", Noghuci used to say. In short, sculptures for children too, cherry-coloured sculptures to touch, sit on and play with.
Moerenuma Park has finally become reality. Noguchi had identified the most appropriate use for the site. "The whole park is a sculpture", the master used to say when he was working on the park, making a "discarded" site into an extraordinary voyage through emotions and surprises.
