  • 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. The huge snow building was exactly as expected, huge. There were many stalls with different food options. And the night included fireworks as well.
  • 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!
