Sapporo Snow Festival

Planning a visit to Sapporo in early February? Do add the Sapporo Snow Festival to your list! Held between early to mid February, this popular festival attracts more that two million visitors!

In particular, I love the beautiful snow statues placed along the Sapporo Odori Park Avenue that stretches for 1.5 kilometers. They come in big and small sizes, and make great pictures too! They look especially photogenic in the evening, when they’re lighted up from sunset to 10pm!

The statues take on different appearances based on the year’s current trends. For example, a snow statue with an “Attack on Titan” theme appeared this year! A word of advice: do bring along your winter clothing, as Sapporo can get very cold in February.



毎年作られる雪像は違うのですが、その時々の人気コンテンツ、旬の人が雪像化されるので日本のトレンドが視覚的に分かると思います。例えば2016年には「進撃の巨人 Attack on Titan」の雪像が披露されました。
