Sapporo Snow Festival (Yuki Matsuri)

This exuberant celebration of snow and ice has been held since 1950 in Sapporo, the capital city Hokkaido. The week's activities feature a colorful parade and competitive events in winter sports, as well as a display of colossal snow sculptures along the main street and in Odori Park. The sculptures are spectacular—intricately carved and often several stories high.

The Sapporo Snow Festival is held in three different sites, along a seven-day period, in Sapporo. This festival dates back to 1950, when a few students built six snow statues in Odori Park. Odori Park is the main site and features amazing large snow and ice sculptures, as well as more than one hundred smaller snow statues. The best winter wonderland view that is offered is at the TV Tower, located at the Odori site, which can be accessed from 9:00AM until 10:00PM for a cost of about 700 yen per adult.
