The Iwate Snow Festival is held at the Makiba area in Koiwai Farm every February, and known as one of Tohoku's 5 Great Snow Festivals.

Snow monuments large and small can be marvelled at – works of art in various shapes and sizes made by almost 4,000 people. Visitors can also join in the fun by sledding down a large snow slide, and riding a horse sleigh or snow train.

In the evenings you can appreciate a light display and fireworks against the winter sky. Why not try some of the local food, such as Genghis Khan (Japanese-style grilled lamb) or milk ramen, from inside one of the snow domes, known as Kamakura.

Koiwai Farm itself is well-known for its milk and cheese dairy products.
