For seven days, every February Sapporo is turned into a winter dreamland of crystal-like ice and white snow.
The Sapporo Snow Festival, one of Japan’s largest winter events attracts nearly two million visitors who come to see the many snow and ice sculptures along Odori Park and the main street in Susukino. They include an array of intricate ice carvings as well as massive snow sculptures that are bigger than some of the city buildings.
On this Hokkaido Winter Festivals Tour #2, we welcome in the 71st Sapporo Snow Festival, but this is only the beginning as we will be visiting a total of 6 festivals. In additional to the Sapporo Snow Festival, we have the Susukino Ice Sculptures, The Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival, Sairinka Light Up, The Sounkyo Ice Light Up Festival, and the Asahikawa Snow Festival.
And yet there is more, much more, 3 onsen stays, a day visiting the historic harbor city of Otaru, 2 sake brewery visits, Asahikawa Zoo to witness the Penguin Walk, Sunagawa Highway Oasis for the very best omiyage shopping under one roof, 2 fish markets, Jogai Fish Market and Sapporo’s Nijo Fish Market, shopping and eating.
