Such a good experience, the workmanship that went into these sculptures is incredible. The first prize was so detailed, I don't know how they manage to keep the snow compact with so much detail.

I only knew the venue address on the morning of February 9, 2019, when I did some research in my Sapporo-Shi Hotel, and thought I could walk here from the Asahikawa Terminal. I got off one stop before the Terminal as I read from my GPS that it was nearer to the venue. At the free but cold (-11) venue, I reckoned that free shuttles service was available and I used the warm vehicle in my return trip, as I had already explored the vicinity in my snowy walk earlier!
