, and both the indoor and outdoor stadiums were completed in 1970.

The indoor stadium was used for the closing ceremony, figure skating and ice hockey, while the outdoor stadium was used for the opening ceremony and speed skating events. After the Olympics, the stadiums have played host to major winter sports events such as the Winter Asian Games and Toyota Big Air.

Aside from being a competition space, the stadiums have become a much-celebrated and well-loved public space that’s suitable all year round for concerts and events, as well as for skating and indoor sports. In 2007, with the official go-ahead from the company Hokkaido Sekisui Heim, they obtained the rights to rename the stadiums their current name, Makomanai Sekisui Heim Ice Arena.

The brilliantly white and large roof of the arena acts as a sharp contrast to Makomanai Park’s luscious greenery. 24 pieces of triangular boards are joined together to form a polygon, which, depending on the weather and seasonal changes in scenery, projects different images – either a harsh look, or a softer one. The modern feel of the ’70s is also expressed in the design and construction of stone pavements in the front garden, the outer walls, the indoor ceilings and the lighting.

Many monuments belonging to the Olympics that were previously displayed and left over in Makomanai Park are now contained in the ice arena. For example, a cursory glance at the pictograms from that time will make you realise their artistic merit in an instant. Won’t it be interesting to keep discovering gems like these?
