The Moomin-Valley Park is a theme park about the Moomin characters created by Finnish author and artist Tove
Jansson. It was opened in March 2019, about 40 kilometers northwest of Tokyo, in Saitama Prefecture.
The Moomin-Valley is the first one, outside of Finland and offers visitors a look into the world of the author and
her creation.

Moomin-Valley is an idyllic and peaceful place where the Moomins live in harmony with nature. The largest
building in the valley is the Moominhouse, and its occupants welcome all visitors from the valley and further
afield.

北欧を思わせる自然豊かなメッツァ(フインランド語で森)は、西武池袋線の飯能駅、またはJR八高線の東飯能駅が
最寄りで、各駅から15分程度バスに揺られてようやく到着となる。ムーミンバレーパークはメッツァヴィレッジを
抜けた先にある。無料の 「パブリックゾーン」が「メッツァビレッジ」、入場料を支払うエリアが「ムーミン
バレーパーク」 で、2019年春にオープンしたテーマパーク。子供ずれ、ペットを同伴した家族に人気がある。
「exhibition gallery」は配色、デザインともに素晴らしい。筆者は数年前の渡欧時、ヘルシンキへの航空機内で
日本にムーミン村を作るための視察団の方にお会いして聞いていたが、やっと実現した。フインランド国外では
初めての事業である。施設は入間川から導水した人造湖、宮沢湖畔にあり、池袋駅から新型特急「Laview」に乗って
飯能まで行くと快適である。
