The Sapporo Snow Festival is a festival held annually in Sapporo, Hokkaido. It lasts over a week and is usually held in Susukino and Tsudome areas.
The Snow Festival stretches out across Odori Park, starting from the Sapporo TV Tower with a large skating rink. From the top of the tower, the festival spans beneath in glittering lights and white snow. Builders come from all over the world to create their pieces at the festival, and some of the most talented teams compete in the International Snow Sculpture Contest.
Millions of people from around the world come to see the snow sculptures that make Odori Park a winter wonderland
