65th Sapporo snow festival – Discover the wonderland!

One of Japan’s largest winter events with over two million people coming to see the hundreds of beautiful snow statues and ice sculptures throughout the city. For seven days in February (5th-11th), Sapporo transform into a winter dreamland of crystal-like ice, white snow, people, food and fun!  There are three main areas which the festival covers; Odori Park, home of the largest sculptures, ice skating rink, concerts and a delicious international food fair. Then down the road in Susukino is the immaculate display of technically perfect and visually magnificent ice carvings, some of which feature real crab, squid and salmon encased inside. Then over at the Tsudome area is where you will find a kiddies adventure land of snow, ice sculptures, snow maze, tube slides, snow rafting, food and entertainment throughout the day.

 

SkiJapan.com will be running bus trips from Niseko to Sapporo on the 6th & 10th.
