Public art representative of “LOVE’s objects”

In Shinjuku Island there are a number of exotic public art.The object that makes the Shinjuku Island colorful and complete will soothed the hearts of visitors!

The concept of public art is the theme of “The earth filled with stars and the earth filled with love.”.Since many public arts are located at a corner of Shinjuku Island, looking for public art will be 1 fun as well!

First of all, when you go to the front of the island, you can see the object saying “LOVE.”.The author is a contemporary American artist called Robert Indiana.The red logo is conspicuous, but the color in the alphabet is yellow and light blue, so it seems to have a more solid look.

It’s good to take a commemorative photo with a sense of letters.It is also a place where the filming was performed such as the drama “Gto” and the “ideal marriage”.There are interesting urban legends, and there is an episode of love when the body passes through between the letters “V” and “E” of “LOVE.”.I recommend you try it as a challenge.

It is a public art full of artistic sense, and it is nice to be able to get rid of the sense of the sense and the essence of the break.

The open Patio, adjacent to the Axa plaza, is a spacious space that allows you to rest while enjoying tea at the cafe in Shinjuku Island.The site is about 660 square meters, and the spacious space is open and nice!

Like Aqua Plaza, we have various events at times as well.There is also a lot of sports watching hot springs.Because it is possible to smoke, it is good that the smoker can take a rest without worrying about it.
