2018 NEW Version is here!

Hello! this is Kuny. Today,  I went to Sapporo Snow Festival 2016. It has held since Feb 5, 2016. Actually, I was afraid that Snow sculptures might melt due to a mild winter in this year. In here, comparatively warm day time like melting snow are continued some days, but I was able to see beautiful Snow sculpture there.

There are 208 works made from snow that was carried by 6500 of 5 tons tracks!

Let me introduce some pics of them!

“That day, Sapporo’s people remembered… the terror at the hands of Titans…”

Spectacular of the biggest titan is expressed by also huge snow sculpture.

In the night, you can see light-up snow sculptures and Project Mappings! So I recommend you visit this festival also night time, but please don’t forget warmly clothed, the temperature could drop as low as -10℃ in Feb.  By the way, it is estimated that the number of visitors will hit 2.3 million people this year. Hope you visit and see those great works!

If you have any question about visiting Sapporo, please feel free to ask anything Hokkaido Info Lounge! Thank you!
