Sapporo Snow Festival

Fantasy winter wonderland

Japan’s famous winter festival held in Sapporo, is an extravaganza of snow and ice sculptures attracting millions of visitors from around Japan and the world.

The Sapporo Snow Festival is one of the most distinctive winter event, held annually in Sapporo, Japan. It originated in 1950, when high school students built a few snow statues in Odori Park. Today, it is one of Japan’s largest winter events, attracting over two million people every year from at home and abroad.

The festival is held over seven days in February at three main locations: the Odori Park site, the Tsudome site, and the Susukino site. These sites are transformed into a winter wonderland, with larger-than-life snow sculptures and ice statues and wonderful activities.

The Odori Park site features fascinating snow sculptures and ice sculptures and the big sculptures are illuminated at night. The Tsudome site has plenty of attractions for children, with giant snow slides, snow-rafting area and inside the dome. The Susukino site features an ice sculpture contest and ice bar with colorful lighting for night-time viewing.

The International Snow Sculpting Competition at Odori Park is popular with teams from around the world. From the blocks of snow and ice provided, teams carve their sculptured masterpieces.
