For where to stay and what to see, do and eat, check out our Sapporo Snow Festival Mega Guide.

The Sapporo Snow festival takes place every year for a week in February in three main sites: Odori Park, Tsudome and Susukino. As the name implies, this festival is all about snow and ice sculptures. The festival’s main site is located in Odori Park. The Odori Site contains most of the snow and ice sculptures as well as plenty of warm drinks and food choices. The ice sculptures in the Odori Site can be as tall as 15 meters height and as broad as 25 meters. The second largest site is the Tsudome Site which includes a variety of snowy activities as well as snow slides, snow rafting and family oriented diversions. Although the Susukino Site is the smallest site, it displays about 100 ice sculptures and is the location of the Ice Sculpture Contest. The snow festival attracts two million people to Sapporo every year and, best of all, entry is free.
