This open air museum is a sculpture garden in Arimafuji Park, Sanda, Hyogo with twelve wind sculptures and Satoyama Windmill donated by Shingu who lives and works in Sanda.
Widely known for his sculptures that move by the natural energy of wind and water, Shingu's sculptures here each dance differently in the breeze, sending us their messages from nature. This is the only place in the world where many of Shingu's sculptures can be enjoyed in the outdoors. Susumu Shingu WIND MUSEUM is considered to be the symbol of Hokusetsu-satoyama Museum by Hanshin-north Branch Office of Hyogo Prefecture.
Kazemü Executive Committee, represented by Susumu Shingu, has been organizing open-air performances twice a year here since May 2015.

Breathing Earth is a self-sustaining village that operates with the natural energies of wind and sunlight. Susumu Shingu, who has been making sculptures that move by the natural energies of wind and water, is planning to realize this project on Earth.
June 11 - September 25, 2011 Atelier in the Rice Paddies was held as the first step forward to realize Breathing Earth.
This is a project to play and learn with children in the rice paddies lasting around four months through the change of seasons from the time of planting to the time of harvest.
The sculptures in the rice paddies were the stage settings of the workshops for children. The main characters are children, who were sending encouraging messages created in the various workshops out into the world. We'll try to discover how we should live in the future on this planet by learning from nature.
