Tadami Snow Festival

10:00am – 8:30pm
Free

Tadami is a tiny town in the rugged mountainous region in the western part of Fukushima Prefecture that is known mainly for this annual festival.

Due to its geography, Tadami has an abundance of snow, from which participants carve giant monuments and statues. Giving sculptors just 20 days to craft a masterpiece, the festival has a central piece not too dissimilar in size to those of Sapporo. The festival features local music performances, comedy sketches, games, a magic show, traditional performances and more. To add to the spectacle, there will be a fireworks display finishing the event at 7:30pm on both days.
