The Sapporo Snow Festival which began in 1950 is currently one of Japan's largest winter events and has been attracting a growing number of visitors from Japan and tourists each year. The seven days event in February is expecting to see more than two million people visiting Sapporo to enjoy and see around 204 snow and ice sculptures at festival sites like Odori, Tsudome and Susukino.


The biggest attraction of Sapporo Snow Festival is at the Odori Park, which stretches about 1.5km through the center of Sapporo, will be transformed into a fantasy world of snow and ice, and the statues are lit up at night. International participants from around the world will display their works, and the works of art sculpted with pure white snow and sparkling clear ice will certainly deliver the sculptors’ passion to the guests viewing them.



The 66th Sapporo Snow Festival will be held from 5 to 11 February 2015 :


Odori site: Odori park; Nishi 1 chome ~ Nishi 12 chome

Tsudome site: The Community Dome, Tsudome

Susukino site: Ekimae-dori (Station Avenue); Minami 4 ~ Minami 6
