Video: Watch This Incredible Piece of Garden Art Play Bach

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 06/14/15 - updated on 06/08/17

The Hokkaido Garden Show in Japan is an incredible spectacle of nature and art

This piece of wooden art, created for the Hokkaido Garden Show, is an incredible testament to the talent of its creators. The Hokkaido Garden Show is generally held from the end of May until early October at the foot of Mount Taisetsu. It is organized into three different theme parks. Over 100 applications are received for the show, and six up-and-coming landscape architects are chosen. The piece in this video was created in the Taisetsu Forest Garden and it's called “Xylophone in the Forest.” Docomo, a Japanese mobile phone company, created this ad, featuring the art piece.
