Larger-than-Life, Massive Snow and Ice Sculptures Downtown

A must-see wintertime Hokkaido showcase

A total of 30,000 tons of snow is needed to build about 200 snow and ice sculptures for one of Japan’s largest winter events, which starts in early February and unfolds at three locations: Odori Park, Tsudome and Susukino. Evenings also feature spectacular musical projection mapping programs at various spots in Odori Park.
At the end of the park, meanwhile, check out sculptors from a range of countries battling it out in an international competition.
With the theme changing each year, this event is well worth visiting multiple times.
