Playground of the Gods

The Playground of the Gods (Kamui Mintara) is a series of totems located on top of Burnaby Mountain near Simon Fraser University. The wooden sculptures stand high on a hill with an incredible view overlooking the city as its backdrop.

The best time to visit the Playground of the Gods is at sunset. When the sun shines dramatically through the sculptures they begin to look etched against the sky.

Created by Japanese sculptors Nuburi Toko and his son, Shusei, the work of art represents the compassion between Burnaby and its sister city, Kushiro, in Japan.
