Located in the north of Japan, Hokkaido is famous for its snow and ice in winter. Therefore, it is not surprising that a continuously growing number of visitors abroad are attracted to Hokkaido every year to enjoy the various winter activities. Among all the traditional winter events in Hokkaido, the snow festival is definitely the most well-known. Featuring the splendid snow and ice sculptures along the long street, the snow festival in Sapporo provides millions of visitors with a dreamland which is made up of crystal-like ice and white snow. On 5th February, we were very lucky to visit this festival, gaining a taste of Hokkaido culture.
