The third anniversary of Moominvalley Park is celebrated with a spring theme and a Moominous renewal

Moominvalley Park in Japan has brought joy to Moomin fans for three years already! The anniversary celebrations are kicked off with a spring theme and some lovely renewals and additions made into the park.

Moominvalley Park celebrates its 3rd anniversary in March 2022.

To mark the occasion, the park will be holding the “3rd Anniversary Special Week” from Wednesday 16 March to Monday 21 March. Throughout the event period, the park has prepared various ways for guests to enjoy their time at Moominvalley Park to spend a pleasant and extraordinary time with the Moomins. The entire program is available on Moominvalley Park’s website.



Floating Flower Walk marks the springtime’s arrival



To celebrate the start of springtime, visitors may enjoy a walk around more than 15 floating flower spots in the park, decorated to reflect the different Moomin characters with different choices of colourful flowers such as roses, dahlias and gerberas.


The flowers used are in season at the time, so the variety of flowers changes regularly.


There will even be a secret flower spot somewhere in the park!




Hana-cho-zu is the practice of decorating hand basins and waterpots with colourful flowers.

Arranging a Hana-cho-zu, the floating flower exhibition, in Moominvalley Park reflects the meaning of water and flowers as symbols of nature and joy in the Moomin stories – and part of the inspiration comes from the beautiful forest, lakes and nature around Moominvalley Park.




Also, during the anniversary celebrations, Moominvalley Park encourages guests to arrive in their flowered headdresses.

The menu in Moominvalley Park has been brought into spring mode!


The new takeaway picnic sets include bread and sandwich fillings and can be assembled into a sandwich of your choice, or set on top for a Smørrebrød (open sandwich).


Guests are invited to enjoy a spring picnic with loved ones in the Moominvalley area, where you can feel the world of the story, or in the Lonely Mountain area, which is rich in nature.
