A unique winter holiday in Japan since 1950
Regardless of the biting air to your body in the first week of February, the 1.5-hour long journey flies from Haneda to this gorgeous city, as you take a stroll to Odori Park, Susukino and Tsudome to instantly feel the ice-festival atmosphere wherever you go, and ice sculptures.
But you can witness firsthand the various sculptures of snow and ice from snow sculptures from different countries. You should be able to feel the moment of excitement, especially at night that gives a certain light effect.
I am in the midst of thousands of visitors, from a variety of ice sculptures, and a lively area with the cries of children's voices in the middle of the arena.
