The Arte Piazza Bibai is a sculpture park in the mountains in Hokkaido, Japan. Bibai, once one of the largest coal mining cities, has been suffering from critical depopulation. The project of art plaza was initiated in order to revitalize the town with arts and cultural promotion. The art plaza includes the restored closed-down school facilities. The restored schoolhouse is a two-story wooden structure and a part of the building is used as a local kindergarten. Children play happily in a thin stream of water running over a spread of marble pebbles and beneath the sculptures. This is a short documentary film about one day in the summer at the Arte Piazza Bibai.
