Sapporo Snow Festivalさっぽろ雪まつり

Event

The Sapporo Snow Festival is considered one of the three greatest snow festivals in the world. In addition to the primary festival venue at Odori Park, festival events are also held in the Susukino area and at the Tsudome (the community dome), which are decorated with close to 200 snow sculptures ranging from the small to the very large. The white snow sculptures glitter under Hokkaido's blue skies, creating an impressive sight. At night, the sculptures are lit up, creating a different, more magical atmosphere for festival-goers to enjoy. Over two million people come from around the world to attend the festival, making it one of the biggest events held in all of Japan.

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
