Sapporo's snow festival

The Sapporo snow festival, or Yuki Matsuri, is one of Japan's most spectacular festivals. For seven days every February, the capital city of Hokkaido (Japan's northern island) is transformed into a winter wonderland - with massive snow and ice sculptures 20 metres tall, toboggan rides, ice bars and all kinds of activities for all ages to enjoy.

Every Japan trip should leave a life-long impression. An InsideJapan trip always will.
